Florida Scrub-Jay

Aphelocoma coerulescens

Description:

Florida's only endemic bird species! I would guess there were 5 or 6 of them. Vibrant blue and gray bird about the size of a mockingbird. Video of it calling: https://youtu.be/m2FgwnxgqBg and one that is a bit clearer hopping around in the tree making smaller chirps: https://youtu.be/wAfF9QbYTu4

Habitat:

On the Eagle Snag Trail near the county dump

Thanks Tukup! First time seeing them, and I didn't even have to leave the county to find a good group of them!
