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.

    The ones here are easier to tell apart…the male sports a large plumb on the top, rear of his head and the female does not…if I were to guess, I’d say this is a female…but then…I’ve been wrong before!! Either way, nice capture…the look in pretty intense!!

  • Thanks, I’ve seen those tufts sticking up on the backs of their heads and sometimes they are smooth. This Blue Jay is still drying our from all the rain we have had. Barb
