mikka says: Glorious colors! It is not the sort of bluejay local to me (which has a crest, and a different body shape, and different patterning), but the same names are used for different birds in different places (european robins and american robins, while both red-breasted, look almost nothing alike and aren't particularly closely related). The closest match I've found so far is a blue dacnis, but an indigo bunting or turquoise tanager or black-throated blue warbler aren't too far, either, and none of those are quite right on -- bird identification is not my forte. ~ Reply?
replied to this: Superb Fairy Wren, maybe? katerina Koukiotis
replied to this: makes sense thank YOU so much Mikka , im not that good with bird breeds and I should be since I have owned pet birds but mainly the most popular
ones like parakeets and cocktails , these birds are so pretty and so colorful :)
