The Blue Jay (Scientific name - Cyanocitta crostata) is a noisy songbird that is found in the Eastern part of North America. They range from the Mid-west to the Eastern Seaboard in the United States and from the Gulf of Mexico and North into Central Canada and the Maritimes. Some can be found as far West in Canada as Alberta. They are very distinctive with a blue crest and white underbelly and blue, white and black plumage. These photos were taken in March 2015 in New Brunswick.
