Blue jays construct their nests in the elbow or large outer branches of coniferous or deciduous trees. They use mud, twigs, grass and rootlets to build their nests, which are usually between 10 and 25 feet off the ground. When it comes to building their nests, the male blue jays do most of the gathering, and the females do most of the building.
