Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata)

Scaled collection of drawings of Blue Jay in various poses with dimensions

The Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) is a songbird with a lavender-blue to mid-blue plumage as its name suggests. The call of the Blue Jay varies as each individual Blue Jay has its own vocal style and has the ability to mimic other sounds. The Blue Jay is known as a highly intelligent songbird. The Blue Jay is native to the eastern and central region of the United States. This songbird can be found near oak trees and near the edge of forests. It feeds on nuts, acorns, soft fruits, seeds, and sometimes small vertebrates. A Blue Jay generally feeds from trees, shrubs, or the ground.
