Montana offers plenty of recreation for bird lovers. Visitors can enjoy seeing the wonders of the Western Scrub Jay in MT. This species is native to North American in western locations, including the state of Montana.
The wonders of this bird is that it does not migrate. It is found in urban locations and can be tame in behavior. For those within local communities, the Western Scrub Jay will also be seen eating on bird feeders.
The Western Scrub Jay is not to be confused with the Blue Jay. They are two different species known to many bird lovers. The Scrub Jay is medium in size and weighs around two to three ounces. Usually, the belly and breast will be gray; the head will hold blue colors and the back will hold brown as well as gray hues.
This species prefers to live in areas of Montana woods, forests, and areas considered as low scrubs. Normally, this bird will be seen in pairs, or family groups. The Western Scrub Jay likes to eat a variety of foods including eggs, young birds, frogs, insects, and lizards. They also enjoy feeding on seeds as well as nuts. Berries are also a delight to these western breeds.
Montana bird watching is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the outdoors. There are locations throughout the state of MT which are conducive to the sport!
