Some facts from http://www.allaboutbirds.org/
The black bridle across the face, nape, and throat varies extensively and may help Blue Jays recognize one another.
Blue Jays lower their crests when they are feeding peacefully with family and flock members or tending to nestlings.
The pigment in Blue Jay feathers is melanin, which is brown. The blue color is caused by scattering light through modified cells on the surface of the feather barbs.

We adopted Chloe from the shelter one year ago today.
Since we don’t know her actual birth date, October 11 it is!
We love her so much!
