Yucatan jay juvenile - 2
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|From my Christmas vacation in Mexico|
Most of the birds there were camera a shy, as most of the birds are, but this guy was posing for me.
He even lowered his head to fit nicely in the frame.
The Yucatan jay (Cyanocorax yucatanicus) is a species of bird in the Corvidae family, the crows and their allies.
It is found primarily in the Yucatán Peninsula, which comprises the northern part of the nation of Belize; and Guatemala.
The jays approximately 30 cm (12 in) long. Adults are black, with cerulean blue wings, mantle, and tail. They have black bills, black eye rings, and yellow legs. Juvenile Yucatán jays have completely yellow bare parts and white, rather than black, body plumage. They molt out of the white plumage by September or October, but retain the yellow bill and eye ring for a few more months. They also have pale-tipped retrices, which the adults lack.
