Yucatan Jay

Cyanocorax yucatanicus


A pair of Yucatan Jays spotted in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. The jay is approximately 30 cm (12 in) long. Adults are black, with cerulean blue wings, mantle, and tail. They have black bills, yellow eye rings, and yellow legs. Juvenile Yucatán jays have completely yellow bare parts and white, rather than black, body plumage. They molt out of the white plumage by September or October, but retain the yellow bill and eye ring for a few more months.
