Is it a bad idea to attract blue jays?

13 years ago

I think blue jays are beautiful birds, but I rarely see them in my yard. So I was thinking of setting up a platform feeder in the front yard, where it is mostly open. But my husband says this is a bad idea because jays are agressive birds and will terrorize the songbirds that visit our other feeder. I kind of agree, but do y'all think it would it be so bad if I set up the platform feeder a significant distance from the other feeders? At this point I have been fortunate enough to not get any super agressive bids like house sparrows or starlings, so I don't want to open the door to them. Any thoughts?
