Green Jay

Green Jay
 The green jay is a bird that is native to tropical areas of the Americas. They are found primarily in Mexico, Central America and Northern South America. The range of the green jay extends up into the US only in south Texas. Green jays live in family units. The young adults from previous broods stick around and help their parents defend the territory. In Texas usually these offspring are kicked out of the territory after about a year. In South America offspring may stay with their parents for several years.
