Eurasian jay

Garrulus glandarius


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.


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.
