    This species, when I’ve seen it in person, looks liken a hybrid of common crow and blue jay (both corvids). I’ve seen pictures online that purport to be steller’s/blue jay hybrids, which is what gave me the idea. Plus the vocalization I’ve heard from them is pretty similar to crow caws.

    I know the species is its own population now, but could it have started with hybridization?
