Florida Scrub Jay (?)
The Florida Scrub Jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens[1]) is one of the species of scrub jay native to North America. It has little fear of humans. It is the only species of bird endemic to the U.S. state of Florida. Because of this, it is heavily sought by birders who travel from across the country to observe this unique species. It is known to have been present in Florida as a recognizably distinct species since at least 2 mya (Emslie, 1996); possibly it is derived from the ancestors of Woodhouse's Scrub Jay, the inland forms of the Western Scrub Jay.

Hello Lawhill,
Though a bit dark and in need of more space in front of the bird, this is a sharp capture of a Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata), presumably the Florida subspecies. The Scrub Jay lacks the crest and has more black on the face.
TFS, regards, Ivan

wonderful shot beautiful bird,
