Yucatan Jay

Cyanocorax yucatanicus

Description:

Immature Yucatan Jays have a yellow bill that turns black in adults.

Notes:

Nearly 100 of these jays were flying around in the trees outside my room at a large touristy resort. This picture was taken from inside my room, with the sliding doors open.

There are a few small white marks around the eyes. The young immature jays have an almost all white head and when it becomes fully mature the head and bill turn totally black.
