[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This one is from my archive. I just wanted to show how the baby Blue Jays have a funny mask to their look when they are young. I also found this tidbit of information:

The Blue Jay's coloration is not derived by pigments, but is the result of light refraction due to the internal structure of the feathers; if a Blue Jay feather is crushed, the blue disappears as the structure is destroyed.
