Green Jay

By far the most colorful of the North American jays, the green jay is often high on the list for beginning birders. As brightly colored as they are, these birds can be surprisingly hard to see in subtropical woodlands, their two-toned greens and yellows blending into the leafy tree canopies they inhabit.

Jays, crows and ravens are corvids, widely known as intelligent birds that live in most areas of the United States. The jays come in many colors, and can be common in many different habitats, from remote wilderness areas to backyard feeders.
