Blue jays (Cyanocitta cristata) are found in many of southern Canada's mixed wood forests, making them well-known to both wilderness campers and suburban dwellers. Their bold colour comes from the inner structure of their feathers, which are not actually blue, but appear so because of the way light reflects off of them.
