SPECIES INFO

The White-throated Magpie-Jay, Calocitta formosa is a large Central American jay species. It ranges in Pacific-slope thornforest from Jalisco, Mexico to Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Magpie-jays are noisy, gregarious birds, often traveling in easy-to-find flocks, mobbing their observers.

White-throated Magpie-Jay hybridizes in Jalisco with Black-throated Magpie-Jay (C. colliei), with which it forms a superspecies.
