$28.00+

Only 1 available


Eurasian Jays are well known for their clever mimicry, often sounding so like a different species that it is virtually impossible to distinguish its true identity unless the jay is seen.

Most of us regards jays as naughty but pretty birds. They have these much admired black-turquoise feathers on the wing-bend, that hunters stick to their hats. Their pinkish-grey upper-parts contrast beautifully with their black tail feathers. A single jay can store as many as 5,000 acorns. They 'cache' them in different places and remember where they are left. Jays can kill vipers. They like to live at the edge of a woodland, overlooking heather fields. Here they have it all: acorns, vipers, seeds, berries, young birds, eggs, bats, and small rodents.

Some call it cheeky birds; they are very clever and handsome birds. Linnaeus called the jay Corvus glandarius (Corvus is Latin for raven). Glandarius (from glandis = acorn) refers to its acorn eating and collecting habit. Especially the jay's hiding habit shows its intelligence.

This is an exquisite art print. Size of print that comes with a neat and sturdy white mount 20.4 cm/25.4 cm or 8 by 10 inches. The print with mount is packed in protective cellophane. It makes a beautiful gift: neatly packed and ready to frame or not to frame, to show standing on a small easel or shelf.

Printed details are amazingly clear.
