fledling blue jays leave the nest between 12 and 20 days and their parents continue to feed it on the ground. a link below shows you what it looks like when it leaves the nest. Take the bird outside and make it squawk to gets the parents attention. then leave it to nature.

: ground in our backyard from the nest
: in one of our trees. My husband and

: nest 3 times, each time the bird
: jumped back out. How do I tell if it

: therefore time for it to learn to
: fly? We took it in overnight and fed
: it because it was so cold outside. I
: just want it to be able to thrive.
