Bushy-crested Jay

The bushy-crested jay (Cyanocorax melanocyaneus) is a species of bird in the family Corvidae. It is found in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and heavily degraded former forest.

Description:

Blue body with a black head and crest when erected.

Breeding:

Bushy-crested Jays lives in family groups up to 15-20 individuals and the entire flock helps to rear three to six eggs in a twig nest. The thin nest made of small sticks and twigs  are mostly built by the female. They lay three to six pink to deep red eggs with red-brown markings and are laid April-May.
