About Eurasian Jay on wiki

Someone said that this member of the crow family is the one that the most common one. I don´t know about that because I rarely see it. But this day, for the first time, I saw several of them. Think it was 5. Mostly it is in the forest and it is said to be shy. And this is the first time I saw one on the ground and got some descent shots of it.

  1. A lovely species. You do well to get these images, I usually find them very reluctant and shy of the camera
