[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Eurasian Jay (Garrulus glandarius) is a species of bird occurring over a vast region from Western Europe and north-west Africa to the eastern seaboard of Asia and down into south-east Asia. Across its vast range, several very distinct racial forms have evolved to look very different from each other, especially when forms at the extremes of its range are compared.

In Europe, "Jay" is used by people who speak the English language as a synonym for the Eurasian Jay.

Distribution and habitat

A member of the widespread jay group, and about the size of the Jackdaw, it inhabits mixed woodland, particularly with oaks, and is an habitual acorn hoarder. In recent years, the bird has begun to migrate into urban areas, possibly as a result of continued erosion of its woodland habitat.

Very sharp details and wonderful colors to your capture!
Congratulation and a great Christmas!

Excepcional trabajo Marx !
Magnífico control de la escasa luz y unos colores sorprendentes por su belleza.
El conjunto de la toma equilibrado y muy bien encuadrado, así como una casi inmejorable pose del ave.

Saludos y buenas fiestas Navideñas:

Hi Marx.
What a nice shot. I like pictured bird so much and scenery too. Details of the Jay are reproduced perfectly as well as tree branch pattern. Smooth and colourful BG is also amazing. Well done and all the best for coming New Year. Have a Happy Holiday Season.

Ciao Marx. Macro eccellente. Ottimo risalto dei colori e buon dettaglio. Composta molto bene.
