Blue Jays Migration and Bird House Project
Over the last 2 weeks our class has been in the shop making bird houses (I will include a picture of my house at the end) Then we were told to pick a bird and talk about flight. I chose the Blue Jay and chose to talk about how they migrate.
How and when Blue Jays migrate remains a mystery, some Blue Jays will migrate once year and then stay in the same spot other years.When Blue Jays migrate they leave in flocks of about 5 - 250 Blue Jays. Some people say the Blue Jays tend to migrate when their food sources run out or if their is bad weather, also younger Blue Jays tend to migrate more often the adult Blue Jays but none of these thoughts have been proven.
