I still haven't seen any Steller's Jays yet. One of my favorites.

@macgenie Mine too. Put out some whole raw peanuts, you'll soon see a bunch.

@macgenie In the shell, though without would probably be fine too. Jays have fun cracking open the shells; we find them under trees all over the homestead. Just make sure not salted.

@macgenie I just toss a handful of whole peanuts on a tray (here's a video); you could use a plate or similar.
