Blue Jay
Cyanocitta cristata
12" (30 cm). Bright blue above with much white and black in the wings and tail; dingy white below; black facial markings; prominent crest.
Chiefly oak forest, but now also city parks and suburban yards, especially where oak trees predominate.
4-6 brown-spotted greenish eggs in a coarsely built nest of sticks, lined with grass and well concealed in a crotch or forked branch of a tree, often a conifer.
Resident east of Rockies, from southern Canada to Gulf of Mexico. Slowly encroaching westward.
A raucous jay-jay, harsh cries, and a rich variety of other calls. One is almost identical to the scream of the Red-shouldered Hawk. Also a musical queedle-queedle.

Cecilia, great colors, great moment.

Maybe, I'd try to add a little bit more of lighting, but it's just an opinion.

I do enjoy the blurred and soft bg; very nice shades of blue.

Hi Cecilia

Great timing to get both in the shot. As always nice saturation of colours. Crisp, clear and sharp. Great POV showing nice plumage detail. :-)

Eats fine mammals, eggs and nestlings, hexapods. Vegetative nutrition - various fruits and seeds. Carry and hide for emergency seeds. The bird is easily tamed and well tolerates bondage.

It is good, that you have caught two birds, moreover in such pose!

Wow!! Great shot. Nice colors.
