Blue Jay having a bad hair day

Blue Jay

This blue jay has been hanging around for about two weeks. We think he is one of three juvenile siblings whose nest was nearby, but the others all have nice crests.

Blue Jays molt in August. This blue jay just got head and neck molt out of the way instead of a gradual.

Greetings from Nova Scotia, Canada.

At first I too thought that a visiting Blue Jay had a bad hair day, but recently I saw two at my bird feeder and figured it out, they are Blue Jays, with beautiful plumage save the head. Am watching the feathers come in slowly but surely :)

Thank you for posting you photo.
