Cyanocorax cyanomelas

Cyanocorax

Cyanocorax is a genus of New World jays, passerine birds in the crow family Corvidae.

It contains several closely related species that primarily are found in wooded habitats of Mexico and Central and South America, with two species, the Brown Jay and the Green Jay, just barely entering USA. Coincidentally, these are also the only species in this genus where the upperparts are not primarily blue or purplish.
