Love that Jay

Most people have nothing good to say about Jays.  Of course, they are speaking mostly about the Blue Jay.  Yet, there is one member of the family that gets rave reviews.  People travel from all over the world to see this particular Jay, the Green Jay.

Like the Blue Jay, it is gregarious, bold and noisy. Unlike the Blue Jay its range is limited.  The Blue Jay ranges over two-third of the United States from the Atlantic to the Rockies.  The Green jay is restricted to South Texas and the eastern regions of Mexico and Central America. While the Blue Jay is common within the suburbs and woodlands, you are more likely to find the Green Jay in brush near streams or flowing water.
