The blue jay is fearless when it comes to protecting its partner, young, and territory. When times get lean, the jay has been known to be even more aggressive and steal eggs from smaller birds to feed their own.
The blue jay is symbolic of mischief shrillness, mimicry, and loud noise. Stories from the Indigenous Nations reference the blue jays as gossipy and nosy. In the Celtic history, the blue jay has replaced even the raven for his mischievous behaviors and deeds.
