James Saxon saw this boldly marked Green Jay at a South Texas ranch.
James, a Birder's World
subscriber and forum member from Beaumont, Texas, was concealed in a blind near a water station when he saw the jay (Cyanocorax yncas)
. He used a Canon 20D, a 500mm lens, a 1.4x teleconverter, and fill flash to take the picture. See a pair of Green JaysSee a portrait of a Florida Scrub-Jay.
