Florida Scrub-Jay


IUCN Conservation Status: Vulnerable

A bold and curious bird, the Florida Scrub-Jay can become hand-tame in areas where it comes in contact with people. Unfortunately, it is restricted to the rare oak scrub community of Florida, a habitat under constant threat of development, and is classified as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act.


Calls harsh and scratchy. Female gives a dry rattle.
