Liam Sullivan spotted what is definitely the biggest bluejay we've ever seen on Boston Common today.

A bluejay is a blue bird, but it is most certainly not a bluebird.
Space added to headline.
I've been seeing bluejays for a couple of weeks.
They take shelter under the eaves of my house during storms, but live in the tree outside my window.
They overwinter just fine.
Um, is Toronto in town?
Are tough birds, bullies of the bird feeder.
They are highly social birds, and live in extended family groupings. The first brood of the year hangs around and helps raise the second brood.
They will gang up to attack predators or simply anybody they don't like. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY does shit list like bluejays!
They are the most dickish of the birds in the area. When our bird feeder was working, they would muscle all the other birds from it. Sharing is caring, my friends.
You haven't had any swans in your area? Re: your bird feeder observations, large birds always bully smaller ones. Cardinals displace chickadees. Crows displace bluejays. Jays do have some behaviors that would be dickish in a human, but most birds do. Judging animals by human standards of behavior is pretty pointless.
As is critiquing jokes as if they were moral dissertations.
If you can divine a joke in that comment, you're using some high-level drugs.
When you see yellow on the forsythia bush, you put down fertilizer. That is the sign to watch for that announces spring.
No one is expressing the slightest curiosity as to why someone is walking around dressed as a giant blue jay while walking their dog.
Now if it were a flamingo or similar bird - that would be strange
Like furries, but avian.
happen in the Boston Common all the time.
Blue Jays are a member of the Crow family & just so you will know if ever asked...black birds are a member of the wren family (related to robins not crows) - so there you have it - everything you never wanted to know about our local fine feathered friends
in your soul?
