The Magpie Jay Takes a Bite
This photo shows his long tail and the distinctive top not on his head.
Blue jays in the USA are known for robbing the food of others. It is interesting that their cousins in Central America share this same trait.
As I have mentioned before, tiny Costa Rica, which is the size of West Virginia or Switzerland, has more species of birds than the USA and Canada combined. One of my guidebooks describes it as Nirvana for birders.
Today is Sunday, so we have photos new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing some photos from our recent trip to Papua New Guinea.
