Flying and Feeding Green Jay

The distinctive and distinguished Texas Green Jay, seen here carefully eating from a desert cactus. The Green Jay is one of the tool-using birds. Wild Green Jays have been observed using tools to extract and eat insects. Known as the Chara Verde in Spanish, this avian makes its home from Southern Texas to Venezuela.

In this crisp inflight image, we can clearly see the blue and black head, green and yellow body, and blue and yellow tail feathers as this bird flies in close for a cactus fruit feast. Bird picture taken on location at Laguna Seca.
