My Blue Jay Buddy imitates Red Shouldered Hawks and Ospreys or "Fish Eagles" back to back. Blue Jays song repertoire is under appreciated. Every season there is always one Blue Jay that is more outgoing and open to interacting with me than the others. This is its way of getting my attention and also presumably discouraging other birds from competing for the peanuts I give out due to the possibility of an avian predators. Except Ospreys really don't eat birds. This Osprey mimicking behavior has been documented in Florida before , but audiovisual documentation is not that great including one I captured back in 2019 https://youtu.be/eYJwzZH1P8A . I consider myself fortunate to finally catch a very close and clear "impersonator" in the act.
