Scrub Jays are part of the crow family of birds.
In the US there are five Scrub Jay species.
All are found in the western US, besides the Florida Scrub Jay.
The Florida Scrub Jay is an endangered species due to extensive habitat loss. It needs a certain type of habitat – as it’s name suggests, this is a scrub-sandy habitat ecosystem which has been extensively lost throughout Florida. They also need a large territory so small patches of habitat are rarely suitable for Florida Scrub Jays.
