The California jay ({Aphelocoma Californica}), the Florida jay ({Aphelocoma Floridana}), and the green jay ({Xanthoura luxuosa}), of Texas and Mexico, are large, handsome, crested species. The Canada jay ({Perisoreus Canadensis}), and several allied species, are much plainer and have no crest. See {Blue jay}, and {Whisky jack}. [1913 Webster]
