They will attack any bird anywhere near the area of their nest in the spring, they will even go as far as stealing their eggs, young birds and even nests. They love robin nests and often take them over for their own nesting. In fact, a Blue Jay nest looks much like a robin's nest a large collection of sticks. The inside of the nest is usually lined with grass. These birds are considered to be very noisy and aggressive but during the nesting season they are very secretive. They Jays like to nest in very thick bushed areas where they can not be seen. And while nesting the bird uses a whisper call to communicate with its mate.
