I heard of a cuckoo that dispossessed a robin of its nest; of another that set a blue jay adrift.
I have often been impressed and amused by the blue jay's habit in this respect.
A hat-tree in the corner had, perched upon it, a stuffed crow, a hawk and a blue jay with bright glass eyes.
About this time the hawk and the blue jay came to see what had made all the noise.
On the result being known blue jay could no longer be restrained, and, falling from under the woman's arm, he was drowned.
Then the blue jay asked all the exhausted animals, “How does it taste?”
When they heard that blue jay had used their father so badly they were very angry.
He hasnt any more principle than a blue jay; and as for morals, hes empty.
The blue jay brings food to his mate, so that she need not leave the nest at all, and many others do so.
One day it was a goose, another a woodpecker, and another a blue jay.
