Texas Bird Family says:

Molting adult. Not a juvenile

Janice Davis says:

I was not sure- but my quick research said gray upper body and no crest. I have seen a lot of molting jays with bald heads – but this bird seemed to be different.
Where did I go wrong?

Texas Bird Family says:

This bird is starting to molt (in other words, he’s losing his head feathers). Juveniles look like adults but are smaller with gray heads.
