    Where are you from, because that is certainly not the American [Common] Blue Jay

    I think it is. You just cant see the crest or the back and wings which is where most of the blue is. Nice shot btw.

    I agree with TLI i dont think this is a blue jay, he is lacking the dark black collar and the white around the eyes and cheek. Here this bird shows a black eye ring and cheek patch with a white eye stripe. the black and especially the white eye strip make it look more like a western scrub jay.

    time of year, given location and lack of the striping/spotting on the chest as well as other dark marks
