Yucatan Jay on Ambergris caye
by elbert on 03/14/08 01:23 PM

I'm fascinated with these. For years they where very illusive to me and now they are here every day.
Cyanocorax yucatanicus Endemic to the Yucatan and Northern Belize.

It was distressing for me to see one of these guys and a green jay in small cages last week. They were both in a small village in central Mexico. The green jay enjoyed being talked to and he made the most enchanting sounds in response. I'm sure he didn't enjoy being in his cage, though.
