Airborne 2

I have this thing for birds in flight. They are so skilled and graceful. When I put out peanuts the Blue Jays become aggressive. They are competing with themselves, a Grey Squirrel, Doves, and Grackle who seem to enjoy the snack as well. So when they fly in, they are moving quickly.

The last one is a Blue Jay taking off without a peanut, as the other one is clearly dominant. The one Jay chased the other the rest of the photo shoot.

Which makes me wonder how they can tell each other apart?
