The Florida Scrub-Jay is a Florida endemic, meaning the species lives only in Florida. Florida Scrub-Jays have blue heads, napes, bibs and wings. Their bellies and foreheads are whitish.
Like many other corvid species, Florida Scrub-Jays are highly intelligent. They are cooperative breeders, meaning young jays will remain with the family to help raise subsequent fledglings.
Unfortunately, Florida Scrub-Jays are threatened, with just 4,000 breeding pairs counted in a 1993 survey.
