The Common Blue Jay Has Amazing Feathers

The blue jay is a very cute bird that has beautiful blue feathers. This passerine bird, measuring 22–30 cm, is native to eastern North America.

Seriously, blue jays are really pretty.

Though their heads and backs are a softer blue, it’s the wings and tail that really shine.
