Blue Jays primarily eat insects and nuts~~but, more importantly, they  
are also primarily ground feeders/foragers.  (That's why they usually  
prefer a tray type feeder).  They have been known to raid nests for  
eggs and nestlings of other birds, but apparently this is not  
common.  They are known to be among the most intelligent of birds.

Sibley's Field Guide to Birds (eastern), and Sibley's Guide to Bird  
Behavior contain fascinating facts about all of our birds, as does  
one of our favorite websites: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/
