Azure-hooded Jay

The jays travel in groups of two to ten individuals and may join mixed-species flocks. It is a secretive species and therefore difficult to observe in the wild. As an omnivore, this jay eats berries, seeds, and small, dead animals. Females lay three to four eggs, and the young fledge after twenty days. This species is listed as Least Concern, meaning it is not threatened with extinction.

The Azure-hooded Jay is found at mid-elevations from southeastern Mexico to western Panama. The bright sky blue hood that gives the species its name can be difficult to see as birds forage in thick vegetation of the subcanopy and edges of humid montane forest. They are best detected by their explosive calls, given while traveling in pairs or small flocks of 3 - 5 individuals. Near the nest, however, Azure-hooded Jays can be surprisingly quiet. More
