"The image on the card depicts a form of behavior
from blue jays known as 'mobbing'. While blue jays
are a cultural symbol of happiness in many countries, mobbing shows a darker, aggressive side. Bands of jays will attack a larger bird, often a predator. The red-tailed hawk in the picture might go after a single jay, but when they come as a group the hawk sits helplessly—or rather, it believes itself helpless."
