Dark blue and black bird with Mohawk feather pattern on head. Loud, confident and bold attitude. Eats unsalted peanuts. Was taking largest nuts first, flying away with nut to bury it and returning for more until all nuts were gone. Sometimes fit two peanuts (in shells) in throat and beak at once.

It is also known as the long-crested jay, mountain jay, and pine jay. It is the only crested jay west of the Rocky Mountains.
