The Stunning Feathers of the Common Blue Jay Are Anything but Common

Share on Facebook

There are tons of “common” bird species out there. But one that looks anything but ordinary is the stunning blue jay…

And they all have something in common: they all look pretty mediocre. Forget extravagant feathers and bright colors, the most common species of bird share the grey-black-brown color variety.

The most common bird in the UK is the wren. Following this species, there are also crows, magpies, blackbirds, sparrows, woodpigeons, and starlings.

Birds are a vital part of the planet’s wildlife.

Despite their lack of tropical colors, we’re a planet or bird lovers.

This recreational activity is most popular amongst retired folk who enjoy spending time in the countryside and wooded areas spotting their favorite species of bird.

And the latest to take off may be one of the prettiest we’ve seen.

You probably imagine a pretty dull looking avian.

But it’s nice to see a more extravagant bird once in a while, right?

The common blue jay has taken over the internet thanks to its gorgeous plumage.

These cuties look anything but common!

Which means you’ve probably seen one of these guys hanging out.

You might never have stopped to have a closer look at these stunners.

In fact, their birdsong can feel a little like nails on a chalkboard.

Meaning they’re not the most popular birds in the avian kingdom.

Giving us the perfect opportunity to get a closer look at those feathers.

But it’s the tail feathers that have really got our hearts racing.

And sometimes they venture north of the border to Canada, too.

They don’t tend to migrate – meaning you can enjoy watching them all year round.

And we can’t remember the last time we saw such intricate tail feathers!
