I feel a real affinity to all the corvidae family

The Blue Jay is a beauty

I've never seen a Jay in the 20 years here

I assumed they were not native to this area
According to my Collins bird book, the Jay is described as "breeds rather more thinly than it's main breeding range" on the distribution map of Ireland.
I agree it's a beautiful bird, but has a rather screeching call.

Disclaimer: I almost certainly haven't a clue what I'm talking about.
