Dwarf Jay

Cyanolyca nanus (Du Bus de Gisignies, B-AL 1847)

The dwarf jay is a species of bird in the family Corvidae. It is endemic to Mexico. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, specifically comprising an oak-pine mix. As its name would imply, this is the smallest member of the family Corvidae at 20–23 cm long and weighing 41 g. It is threatened by habitat loss. Source: Wikipedia
