Florida Scrub-Jay Trail News
News Archives Back to News Trailday October 24, 2020
Fall typically beckons the Florida Scrub-Jays to gather acorns for the colder winter months when the delicacies of insects, frogs, toads, lizards, grasshoppers and grubs, among others, are not readily available. Parents will teach their young to gather the acorns and “cache” (hide) them either in the sand or sometimes in the bark or crevice of a tree. Each adult jay will cache approximately 6,000 – 8,000 each year. 
This is also the time of year that the juveniles will begin to look more and more like their parents in coloration. Enjoy a family hike on the trails and search for one of over 120 birds from our Birders Checklist. 
We continue to have recommended safe practices in place and a lot of acres to spread out on.
