Black-throated Jay

Cyanolyca pumilo

The Black-throated Jay, known scientifically as Cyanolyca pumilo, is a captivating species of bird belonging to the Corvidae family. This avian wonder is adorned with a striking black throat, a feature from which its name is derived.

Identification Tips

When endeavoring to identify the Black-throated Jay, one should look for its characteristic black throat, which stands out against its otherwise vibrant plumage. As with many corvids, this species exhibits the robust body and strong bill typical of its family.

Habitat

The Black-throated Jay is a denizen of subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. These lush, verdant environments provide the perfect backdrop for observing this species in its natural setting.

Distribution

This bird graces the landscapes of Chiapas, Guatemala, and Honduras, where it can be found flitting through the forest canopies.

Conservation Status

The Black-throated Jay is currently listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List. This status indicates that, for now, the species is not at immediate risk of decline in population numbers.

I use this app all the time as it’s quick and easy to log individual sightings or whole birding sessions. It’s an excellent way to meet new people and the forum is full of really friendly people. The challenges are a great way to get involved and learn more about birds. Cannot recommend it enough!

Terrific App for Birders
Downloaded Birda around the time my interest in birding was sparked, and it has been a terrific app to help me (1) share my experience, (2) document my sightings, and (3) learn more about birds in general. That said, I also believe Birda is a fantastic app for birders of all experience levels. Great community!
