blue jays in the farm fields

I was sitting in my suv this morning parked in front of the old farmers rock wall watching the chipmunks playing in the spring sunshine and I heard that call, I wasn't sure if it was a blue jay or woodpecker now I know for sure

The blue jays in my region

The blue jays in my region seem to mimic the sound of clothes lines being pulled quickly. I have also heard a bird (not sure if it was a jay) mimic a telephone ringing.

We have several of these

We have several of these pairs in our yard. They often try to steal the Robin eggs and the eggs from the Mockingbird's nest. It is quite comical to seek the Mockingbird chasing the Jay's and knocking him away from their tree. We live in northeastern Oklahoma

We have lots of blue jays

We have lots of blue jays here on the NC coast. I have several nests in my yard.
