Mexican Jay

Mexican Jay (Aphelocoma ultramarina) in the Cave Creek Canyon off South Fork Road south of Portal, Arizona. The jay was in the woods with a high canopy and I used fill flash to soften the shadowy areas on the bird. This area is located in the Coronado National Forest and on the east side of the Chiricahua Mountains.
