White-throated Magpie-Jay

Cyanocorax formosus (Swainson, 1827)

The White-throated Magpie-Jay (Calocitta formosa) is a large Central American jay species. It ranges in Pacific-slope thornforest from Jalisco, Mexico to Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Magpie-jays are noisy, gregarious birds, often traveling in easy-to-find flocks, mobbing their observers. Source: Wikipedia
