Eurasian jay

Garrulus glandarius

Description:

The shy jay (Garrulus glandarius) is a strikingly colored member of the crow family. It is generally pinkish-brown in color, with a black tail, whitish throat and rump patch and a blue patch on the wings, barred with black. There is a broad black 'mustache' on either side of the bill, and the crown is streaked with black. Juvenile jays are a darker reddish than the adults. The most common noise produced is a loud scream, which serves as an alarm call.

Habitat:

The jay breeds in coniferous and broadleaved woodlands, as well as in large wooded parks, preferably where there are oaks, as well as in orchards and gardens.
