Sometimes we don't value blue jays as they are seen as aggressive and predatory. As a true generalist - jays take on lots of different roles in the environment - predator on insects and somenimes the eggs or young of other songbirds; collector (and planter)of acorns and other seeds; and visitor and dominant force at bird feeders and picnic spots. Jays are among the most intelligent birds and quickly learn to do unusual things such as pick ticks off of deer and livestock, and store a variety of foods such as caterpillars and dog food.
