 Why do they call you a Blue-bird?

Uploaded: June 05, 2020 | Entered: June 05, 2020 04:19:16


Why do they call you a Blue-bird? Because I am a bird colored blue! Why do they call you a Blue Jay? Because I am a Jay that is blue! There are ten species of jays in North America. These birds can be found in the conifer forests of Canada, drier regions of central United States and the tropics of Mexico. Jays are loud birds who are known for their noisemaking whenever their area is intruded upon. There are 3 separate groups of Scrub-Jays, the Florida Scrub-Jay, as the name indicates is found in central Florida, the Western Scrub-Jay is found along the western regions of the United States and the Island Scrub-Jay is found on Santa Cruz Island, which is among the Channel Islands off the coast of California. As well as the Pinyon Jay, which is found in the central parts of the United States. Now you know!
