Snow is falling heavily and the jay, along with other birds is finding it difficult to know where to perch and what to feed on. He digs through the snow to find food underneath it. When he can he will sit and watch smaller birds feeding to know where the food is, and then fly in to get it himself. At the bird feeder, he tosses the smaller food item aside to find the peanuts that are at the bottom and piles them into his beak 4 and 5 at a time. At dusk he flies to the Laurel tree, and sits for minutes there in the top, his eyes rotating rapidly to see any danger that might be around, before diving into the centre of the tree to roost for the night.
