I've tried so many times to get a picture of a Jay with its crest up! And even though this picture does present the 'quiff' it is a ridiculous crop and I probably won't ever use it other than to show people who they can do. Jays are one of the most expressive Birds in the country! They express themselves not only by posture but their vocalisations go way beyond the typical squawk that you usually hear in the woodlands. They can mimic the sound of Buzzards and just like Magpies, they actually have a beautiful song which you hardly ever get to hear! When you watch them close up in places like Forest Farm, you can hear them making very quiet intricate sounds between each other. Very underrated birds and highly respectable.
