Jay (Garrulus glandarius)

Appearance:

Largely unmistakable. Pale pinkish brown. Wings dark with white and blue patches. Tail black and rump white (conspicuous in flight). Crown speckled in black. Striking black moustache stripe. Flight pattern straight and fluttering like Nutcracker, but tail longer and bill shorter.

Sound:

Large repertoire. Most heard call a short, drawn and very hoarse, raspy sound, often given in quick successions. Also a Buzzard-like, mewing "peeeaaa" (more drawn and less full tone than Siberian Jay). Quiet and varied subsong with mimicry, resembling a small passerine heard from both sexes. Many other social sounds.
