Black-headed Jay

Garrulus lanceolatus Vigors, 1830

The Black-headed Jay or Lanceolated Jay (Garrulus lanceolatus) is roughly the same size as its close relative the Eurasian Jay, but a little more slender overall except for the bill which is slightly shorter and thicker. The top of the head is black and it has a more obvious crest too and a longer tail. Source: Wikipedia
