I have so much to share and write about regarding our latest trip to Mexico. We finally made it over to ‘the other side.’ AND I feel in love with an new bird – the San Blas Jay. Here is a sneak peek. Hopefully, I will be back to update my blog this weekend with trip pictures and highlights.
The San Blas Jay is a large jay endemic to the Pacific coast of central Mexico. It has a black and underparts, crisply set off blue wings, back, and tail. This is very social, living in groups of up to 30 individuals and containing multiple breeding pairs. The San Blas Jay also has helpers at the nest: members of the group, in addition to the parents, help to feed the young, especially after fledging. Primarily an insectivore, the San Blas Jay also feeds on fruit and lizards in various habitats such as mangrove swamps and dry scrubby woodlands. Other common names for the San Blas Jay include Geai de San Blas (French), Acapulcoblaurabe (German), Chara de San Blas (Spanish), and the Black-and-blue Jay.
