Sections

The Azure Jay is found primarily in forests of southeastern Brazil.  It is distinguished by its blue body and black head and neck.  The Azure Jay is omnivorous, but tends to eat the fruit and seeds of Araucaria trees.  It's conservation status is rated as Near Threatened due to habitat loss and deforestation.  Not much is known about the Azure Jay and therefore more data is needed on many aspects of its biology.
