Only blue-and-black jay in its limited range in interior of northern Central America. Found in brushy woodland, pine-oak forest and edge, and plantations, foraging at all levels. Usually in small groups, which can be noisy and conspicuous or very quiet and easily overlooked. Sometimes found with mixed-species feeding flocks that include Green Jays and orioles. Lower breast and belly are tinged blue but often appear black. Bushy crest usually held flattened and thus not noticeable.
