The California Scrub Jay is a medium-sized bird, approximately 11–12 inches in length, with a 15 inch wingspan and about 2.8 ounces in weight. It has a blue head, wings, and tail, a gray-brown back, grayish underparts, and white eyebrows. The throat is whitish with a blue necklace.


California Scrub Jays are found from Washington State south through California and western Nevada near Reno to the west of the Sierra Nevada. They inhabit areas of low scrub, preferring pinon-juniper forests, oak woods, and edges of mixed evergreen forests. They can also be found in suburban gardens and backyards.


California Scrub Jays are omnivores. They feed on small animals, such as frogs and lizards, eggs and young of other birds, insects, and (particularly in winter) grains, nuts, and berries. They will also eat fruit and vegetables growing in backyards.


Habits and Lifestyle

California Scrub Jays are social birds that are active during the day. They usually forage on the ground in pairs, family groups, or small non-kin groups, outside of the breeding season. California Scrub Jays store food in scattered caches within their territories and are able to recover the hidden caches even after long periods of time. In the process of collecting and storing this food, they often plan ahead in choosing cache sites to provide adequate food volume and variety for the future. Due to their accurate observational memories, these birds may steal food from caches made by other jays and may also steal acorns from acorn woodpecker caches. California Scrub Jays are playful and noisy in their nature. Their call or “screech” is described as “harsh and scratchy”. They also utter loud and harsh quay-quay-quay calls.

Mating Habits

California Scrub Jays are monogamous and form pair bonds that last for many years. They breed from March to April. To attract a female, the male performs a courtship display; he hops around her with an erected head and fanned tail dragging. When the pair is formed, the female starts to construct the nest which is usually located low in trees or bushes, 3.3-32.8 ft. During the nest construction, the male guards the female from the nearest perch. The nest is sturdy, with an outside diameter of 13-23 in, constructed on a platform of twigs with moss and dry grasses lined with fine roots and hair. The female lays 4 to 6 eggs with two common shell color variations: pale green with irregular, olive-colored spots or markings; and pale grayish-white to green with reddish-brown spots. The female incubates the eggs for about 16 days. The chicks are altricial; they hatch naked, helpless, and with eyes closed. The chicks start off fully gray. The older they get, the more they turn blue. On their heads, chicks tend to have a red crest that resembles a comb which they will lose on day seven. The young usually leave the nest about 18 days after hatching and remain with their parents for about five months. They become reproductively mature after about 1 year of age.

Natural Sightings: Waiting out the Storm

California Scrub Jays (Aphelocoma californicus) are one of the most noticeable birds of the oak woodlands, riparian canyons and chaparral shrublands of the Tehachapi Mountains. Their raucous call gave rise to the Nuwä name for these birds: Cho-iikizh, which is pronounced choh-EEK-izh.

Jays are very smart, and will quickly learn if an area resident is willing to provide peanuts in the shell or other some treat. If they are hungry they will eat such a prize immediately, but they often cache it for later.

Jays have an amazing memory, and are able to find most of the assorted nuts and seeds that they cache. Not all of them, however, and for that reason, jays are often responsible for lots of trees getting planted, as acorns or pine nuts that they’ve hidden in the top soil or leaf duff get rained and snowed on, and then germinate and sprout in the spring.

Jays are very suspicious, rightfully so, of their neighbors, and if they think they’ve been watched as they bury a nut, they will wait a few minutes, dig it back up, and transfer it to a new location that they feel is more secretive.

California Scrub Jays can sometimes be seen standing on the back of deer, gleaning for ticks or other parasites. They will also help themselves to deer hair as nesting material in the spring when the deer are shedding.
