I told you! But now seeing both pictures at the same time I can say they are really different, Plush-crested have yellow eyes and Black-chested white eyes with grey marks! But the plumaged are quite similar.
And I'm totally agree, beautiful, elegant birds.

You're absolutely right the Black-chested and Plush crested jay are very simillar! http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/261...

They're beautiful little birds. I especially love the closeup in your series, It really highlights the dark, rich blue colour.
