The Plush crested jay (Cyanocorax chrysops) is found in central-southern South America. The black forehead shows stiffened feathers becoming softer on the crown, and forming a velvety crest. The result is a peculiar plush-like head, giving the bird its English name. The adult has bright indigo-blue upperparts. The upperwing shows brownish inner-edges of primary flight feathers. The graduated tail is tipped pale yellowish or white. Both sexes are similar. The Plushed-crested Jay has a large repertoire of more than 20 different sounds.
