I have a 1/2 grown bluejay flying around my back porch. He landed on the railing and sat there huffing and fluffing his feathers (was shedding bits of tree - must have barely missed hitting one.) He was aiming for my roof - but he wasn't quuuiiittee sure he could make it. He'd huff and spread out his wings ..... and then pull them back and shake his head. Then spread his wings again...give a tiny hop.....and fold them back and shake his head. Finally about the 6th time he actually took off - and from the "THUMP" I heard it must have been a hard landing but I don't see him so he must be ok. Hilarious to watch tho!
