The Eurasian Jay

I skogbrynet møter vi idag nøtteskrika, egentlig et medlem av kråkefamilien og blir enkelte steder kalt ‘skogskjære’ eller ‘gransjur’. Nøtteskrika kan bli rundt 35 cm lang og veier stort sett  140-190 gram!  Vi finner nøtteskrika i såkalt blandingsskog praktisk talt over hele landet, men kan kanskje helst i Syd-Norge. Hva man kanksje ikke er så oppmerksom på er at nøtteskrika fra tid til annen kan utstøte  skrik som minner om en hauk og dermed sprer ren panikk blant alle småfuglene i området.
Today we meet the Eurasian Jay, actually a member of the crow family. A noisy and babbeling bird living in mixed woodlands all over the country, however, possibly in a somewhat greater numbers in the Southern part of Norway.
What is less known about this bird is that it from time to time emits a call sounding like that of a hawk, thus creating sheer panic among the smaller bird species on the forest floor.

    I do like Jays, as they just look lovely with their blue! I had once one in my garden…
