The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.

Species Distribution Information

The Blue Jay is a casual winter visitor to the Northwest, including the eastern part of the state of Washington, from its breeding grounds in most of Canada. It often migrates in huge flocks and its breeding range is expanding to the Northwest.
