Genus Garrulus

Eurasian Jay - The Eurasian Jay is a species of bird occurring over a vast region from Western Europe and north-west Africa to the eastern seaboard of Asia and down into south-east Asia. Across its vast range, several very distinct racial forms have evolved to look very different from each other, especially when forms at the extremes of its range are compared.

Lanceolated Jay - It occurs in eastern Afghanistan and the Himalayas across to Nepal in wooded country with large areas of open ground rather than dense forest. It also occurs in some cultivated areas and even near villages as long as there are enough trees and scrubland nearby.


Purple Jay - This jay has a very restricted distribution occurring only on the southern Japanese islands of Amami ƌshima and Tokunoshima in pine forest, sub-tropical woodland and cultivated areas especially around villages.
