This is a photo of a Blue Jay which many people get mixed up with Bluebirds, Western Scrub Jays or Steller’s Jays.  My friend Seabrooke wrote an exceptional post on the Blue Jay that I want you to read.  You can find her post here: Bold and Bossy. The Jays are members of the Corvidae family that includes Crows and Magpies.  We have the Gray-breasted Jay, Pinion Jay, Gray Jay, Western Scrub Jay, Steller’s Jay and Clark’s Nutcracker here in the West, whereas they have the Gray Jay and Blue Jay in the East.  I wrote a post last year on our western Fall Bird Watching Jays.
