Belonging to the Corvidae family of Crows and Jays, the Western Scrub Jay is a common resident of the Garden. It's a medium-sized bird, with a blue head, wings, and tail, gray mask and back, and pale gray underparts. It can be seen foraging in trees and on the ground and eats insects, lizards, the fruit of plants, and the eggs and young of other birds. It's quite often heard ("SHREEP!") before seen.
