      I too have mature oaks (and redwoods), which means lots of jays. I see the opposite, though... hummers chasing the jays. It always cracks me up. Just yesterday I watched a jay trying to get the ripe cherry plums, which are in a [nesting, I believe] female Anna's territory. She should not care about cherry plums, but she chased the jay. TWICE. And the jay fled. [linked image]

      Maybe the west coast hummingbirds are tougher. Or our scrub jays are wimpier? [linked image]
