Like other jays, crows and ravens, the Stellars' jay is extremely intelligent. It has a number of calls which it used to communicate with other jays, and to trick other birds. It can imitate the cry of the red-tailedhawk, the red-shouldered hawk and other predators to dissuade them of staying in the area.
