Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Attractive dusty-blue jay; essentially looks like a washed-out scrub-jay. Found in pine-oak woodlands in mountains and canyons from Arizona to central Mexico. Eastern populations (occurring in the Big Bend region of Texas and south into Mexico) average darker and more contrasty, more similar to Woodhouse’s Scrub-Jay. Look especially for plainer face on Mexican Jay. Typically found in flocks, sometimes up to a dozen or more individuals. Feeds primarily on acorns.
