Blue Jay


Photo Information
Another regular visitor to the feeder.


The pigment in Blue Jay feathers is melanin, which is brown. The blue color is caused by scattering light through modified cells on the surface of the feather barbs.

Great shot and such a lovely looking bird, there were a lot of these in Canada when we were there, so nice that you have them visit your garden.
