The blue jays will take over the feeders then the Red Birds will come and eat. Neither at the same time. The Red birds will have tons of other birds join them but not so much with the BJ but they don't chase them away. Wife is going through more bags of bird feed than I did cattle feed when I had a small cow/calf operation. Ha. They are beautiful. My phone just takes bad pictures. Took this from my back door. BJ is eating some of the bread crumbs my wife also puts out.
