Brown Jay


I love this photo because the Jay blends completely with the dry brown leaves.  It is a perfect match.  Unless you don't like matchy, matchy. 

I photographed Mr. Brown in Belize this winter.  For more bird watching visit Paying Ready Attention 

And have you checked out my latest post? Where is your favorite place on earth? Leave a comment and tell me where yours is.  Just curious...

So different from both the European and N.American jays. Love the shot.

A lovely photo. He's bigger than the Jays I'm used to.

Mr.Brown is a beauty!

He is much more subdued than our jay. I'm guessing he wasn't easy to spot since he blends in so well.
Lovely capture!

I saw this bird in CostaRica 2 years ago. I think they were very elegant. :)

Great bird for WBW! I heard Belize is a beautiful place for birding. Pretty shot!

Mary said...

I love him. And there's nothing wrong with matchy-matchy once in awhile!

Great shot - it does seem to be a great colour match.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

I have never heard of a brown jay. He is camouflaged perfectly among the dried leaves. :)

This is wonderful, so much like a monotone painting..it really is worth framing and putting on your wall.
