Have you ever seen Blue Jay? This beautiful bird is anything but common and they live up to their name. Want to see them? Scroll down and bless your eyes.
And seriously, blue jays are really pretty.
The thing is that when you see these beautiful birds all the time, you almost forget how special they are.
At least, to other birds.

Though their heads and backs are a softer blue, it’s the wings and tail that really shine.
And you know what’s crazy?
There’s no blue pigment in a blue jay’s feathers. The feathers are physically brown due to a high concentration of melanin.
In fact, there are very few truly blue things in nature. Usually, it’s actually reflected light.
Pretty cool, right?
