Nesting Habits of the Blue Jay

Blue Jay

Blue Jays build their nests in tree branches or where there is a "V" in the tree. The nest is made from grass, small twigs, leaves, and bark and is sometimes "glued" together with mud.

The female Blue Jay will lay between 3-6 eggs which she will incubate for up to 18 days. Sometimes the male will assist with the incubation, though his main task is to bring food to the female Blue Jay as she sits on the nest.

The baby Blue Jay chicks fledge in about three weeks and will leave the nesting area in about 2 months.
