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.
