Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Well-named: this distinctive large jay is the color of dark chocolate with paler grayish belly. Sexes alike; juveniles similar to adults but with yellow legs, bill, and eyering. Long tail and floppy flight with deep wingbeats. Common and conspicuous in Mexico and Central America, with very limited range in U.S. Found in small groups in wooded habitats, often near water. Sometimes seen at bird feeders. Listen for very loud calls "kleer, Kleer, kleer."
