Outdoors -- Courting

Blue jays have two main calls.  One is a loud, annoying "YANK!"  The other sounds like a rusty gate swinging in a strong wind.

But at this time of the year, the second call changes.

It almost becomes musical, something like a piccolo.

That's how you know when blue jays are courting their mates.
