Unicolored Jay Aphelocoma unicolor




Snatches their food from the plant or on the ground. Other species of same genus stored different kinds of food by digging in the ground, or hiding in the trees, the birds are not entirely dependent on these reserves to survive. It is necessary to consider whether Unicolored Jay has the same habit.

The flight is usually strong and floating, with constant wingbeats.

Sometimes in flocks with other bird species such as Azure-hooded Jay (Cyanolyca cucullata) and White-throated Jay (C. mirabilis). Beset with vocalizations and persecutions to predators.
