When I used to go camping back when I was a kid, these used to land right on our hands and eat from our palms. Very docile, and not seemingly afraid of anything. I still have a picture somewhere of one of my friends wearing a wide brimmed hat, had bread on the rim, and the jays would land on his head and eat :)
