Turquoise jay



Turquoise jay, Quito, Pichincha Province, Ecuador. March 2016

I had misidentified this bird. As noted it turns out to be a turquoise jay.
I used to think our fall warblers were a challenge, they are easy compared to all the bird species we saw in Ecuador.

Thanks Beto Matheus for helping out.
Cyanolyca turcosa

 Omnivorous, but the diet is poorly known. Presumably primarily eats insects.
