The bluejays in our back yard love peanuts in the shell. During the past summer, we placed about 6 peanuts at a time on our patio table. Within minutes, a bluejay swoops in, grabs a peanut and flies off. If several jays arrive, to get a bigger share of the peanuts, we have seen a jay bury his first peanut in the nearby grass, put a leave on it, and come back for a second one. We have also watched a jay put a "single" peanut in the back of it's throat and pick up a second "double" one before flying off. Yes, bluejays are smart birds.
