Florida Scrub Jay, endemic to the state of Florida. This beautiful Jay is listed on both the federal and state threatened species lists with 4,000 breeding pairs estimated to be left in the state of Florida. Note the bands on the legs.
These Jays are omnivorous – they eat acorns, seeds, peanuts, insects, tree frogs, turtles, snakes, lizards and mice.
Here is a photo I took this summer of “my” Western Scrub-Jay.
