Brown Jay

Distribution: Mexico south into Central America along the Gulf. Extends north into southern Texas (Rio Grande).
 
Description:   Two distinctly different populations exist.  The northern birds have a mostly dark brown plumage with a paler plumage below.  Those occurring in the south have white bellies and white tips to the outer tail feathers.  Adults have black bills, legs and feet.  Juveniles can be identified by their bare yellow parts, including their yellow eye rings.
