Lidth's Jay

Garrulus lidthi Bonaparte, 1850

The Lidth's Jay (Garrulus lidthi) is a passerine bird in the family Corvidae, native to Japan. It is slightly larger than its close relative the Eurasian Jay, with a proportionately stouter bill and also a longer tail. It has no discernible crest, with the head feathers a velvety black, the shoulders and back a deep purplish blue and all other parts a rich chestnut purple. Source: Wikipedia
