During cold weather I put birdseed and peanuts on my deck railing in addition to the feeders. This allows more birds to eat at the same time. The blue jays will go right for the peanuts; bullying smaller birds out of their way. I’ve learned to put the peanuts in one section of the railing so the jays will congregate there. They sometimes eat several peanuts while on the railing then grab 2 or 3 more before flying off to a tree to eat them. This jay was getting ready to swallow his last peanut.
