Along with the mourning doves, he is the largest of the birds who come to visit my small garden, measuring close to a foot in length. Compare that size to the female goldfinch posted yesterday; she only measures 4 inches long.
I read at Cornell University's All About Birds website that blue jays lower their crests when they are feeling comfortable in the area that they are feeding in. Obviously he's quite comfortable with the feeders and the garden as he will swoop in and bully the songbirds away from whatever it is he wants, be it the feeder or the birdbath.
