The Violaceous Jay (Cyanocorax violaceus) is a species of bird in the Corvidae family, the crows and their allies.
It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and heavily degraded former forest.
The range of the Violaceous Jay is the southwest and northwest Amazon Basin, from northern Bolivia, through Amazonian eastern Peru and Ecuador, Amazonian Colombia, and the Orinoco River Basin and beyond into northern Venezuela. The range is east of the Andes cordillera, except in the north in Colombia and Venezuela. In southwest Guyana, (the southwest Guiana Shield), the range borders Roraima state, Brazil and the Amazon River, (Rio Negro), tributary, the south-flowing Branco River of central Roraima.
In Brazil's western Amazon Basin, the Violaceous Jay is found in Roraima, Amazonas, and Acre state, the west of North Region, Brazil.
