Aphelocoma coerulescens Order: Passeriformes Family: Corvidae (Crows, Jays, and Magpies)

The Florida Scrub-Jay exemplifies the best of what many human societies call family values. Young males stay with their parents a year or more, helping them raise their younger broods. And there is absolutely no evidence of any young fathered by a male other than the mother’s mate. They often approach people and other large invaders on their territory.
