Florida Scrub-Jay, Identification- Cornell Lab of Ornithology

A bold and curious bird, the Florida Scrub-Jay can become hand-tame in areas where it comes in contact with people. Unfortunately, it is restricted to the rare oak scrub community of Florida, a habitat under constant threat of development

Quote from the article
==================
Individual members of a Florida Scrub-Jay family take turns watching for hawks while the rest of the family looks for food. If a dangerous hawk is seen, the sentinel gives an alarm call and everyone dives for cover. A different call alerts the family to snakes and other dangers on the ground, and the entire family will join in mobbing a terrestrial predator.
====================================================

Sounds like us folks here at Care2 when faced with an animal abuser!

Beautiful bird and the calls: Calls harsh and scratchy. Female gives a dry rattle.

Sounds just like somene who should stop smoking!

Thank you Raffi. Very interesting.
