Western Scrub-Jays are 11½ inches long, about the same size as a Blue Jay. In many ways their habits remind me of Blue Jays as well. They are bold, loud, and eat almost anything. They are often found in areas with oak trees. They bury acorns in fall, and then dig them up for eating during the winter. As often happens when birds bury acorns, some are not found and grow into new oak trees.
