The Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) is a passerine bird native to North America. It belongs to the Corvidae family and is known for its blue, white, and black plumage. They primarily feed on nuts, seeds, fruits, insects, and occasionally small vertebrates. Blue Jays are highly vocal birds, producing a variety of calls including harsh squawks, whistles, and mimicry of other bird species.

They are intelligent and adaptable, often seen in a range of habitats including forests, parks, and suburban areas. Blue Jays are known to be territorial and form social groups, especially during the breeding season. They build cup-shaped nests in trees using twigs, bark, and grass.
