Blue Jay – Cyanocitta cristata
I never tire of seeing this beautuful iridescent blue,
white, gray and black feathered bird at my feeders.
They were first seen in Colorado in 1903 and are now well established in eastern Colorado and along the urban corridor of the Front Range, where they are year-round residents.
Both the male and female are similar in color.
