I feel a real affinity to all the corvidae family

The Blue Jay is a beauty

I've never seen a Jay in the 20 years here

I assumed they were not native to this area


According to my Collins bird book, the Jay is described as "breeds rather more thinly than it's main breeding range" on the distribution map of Ireland.
I agree it's a beautiful bird, but has a rather screeching call.

Different worlds
Blackbirds, house sparrows, starlings!!!!!!! Aggressive feral invaders taking over space from our wrens, honeyeaters, thornbills, finches, shrikes, wattlebirds, parrots etc.
There are not more than five primary colours, yet in combination they produce more hues than can ever be seen - (Sun Tzu 600BC)
