Blue Jay

A year-round regular at the feeders is the Blue Jay, Cyanocitta cristata. All the local critters acquiesce to their aggressive manners as well as their warning cries. A blue jay can clear the yard in a moment.

Here's one making off with a peanut. Notice the lack of coloration here. The Blue Jay's color is of refraction--not pigment. I wonder if this is why we're missing the blue here?
