    Blue Jays do not tolerate raptors. They scramble like fighter jets. I’ve seen this in my own back yard. Jays dive bombing a Cooper’s while the white-wings and sparrows all disappear.

      I see that in Central Park too. Fun to watch. The raptors usually just hunch up, scowl and ignore it. When looking for hawks or other raptors I listen for mobbing birds.

    What a beautiful image. Love the underbelly view of the blue jay, as well as the juxtaposition of the birds against the branches.
