I knew that blue jays could do a good red-tailed hawk impression, but this spring I've been seeing quite a few jays doing an absolutely perfect imitation of a broad-winged hawk. I feel like I can't trust birding by ear for that one anymore. It's an interesting behavior that I don't think I've noticed in years past. I wonder if they do it to scare the other birds. Corvids, mischievous as always. -Molly JacobsonMerrimack
