The Green Jay

Colorful and boisterous, the green jay (Cyanocorax yncas) is a tropical bird who’s range
is expanding from Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley up through much of the South Texas Brush Country.  Green jays are gregarious birds, interesting to watch and regarded as highly intelligent.

Green jays are especially fond of woody thickets near creek bottoms.
