The Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) is a passerine bird in the family Corvidae, native to eastern North America. It resides through most of the eastern and central United States, although eastern populations may be migratory. Resident populations are also found in Newfoundland, Canada while breeding populations can be found across southern Canada. It breeds in both deciduous and coniferous forests, and is common in residential areas.
I find the Blue Jays to be beautiful birds, medium size, shy but will get what they want through aggression.
What a lovely blue.
Thank you, Susan. 🙂
Very beautiful birds HJ… I love their plumage and colour.
Thanks so much, Chris. 🙂
Well done, HJ, these are awesome shots! I tried to photograph a Blue Jay today and never got a shot, they definitely are shy and like to hide!
Thank you very much, Donna. With them you have to be extremely patient. 🙂
Such a beautiful bird, H.J, and shown off to wonderful effect in your images
It’s indeed a beautiful bird. Thank you, D. 🙂
