The green jay is distributed from South Texas to Honduras, Colombia to North Bolivia. In Mexico it is located on the Pacific side. In Venezuela, to the north along the whole of the coastal and Andean mountain ranges.
It does not present sexual dimorphism. It presents a high intolerance to intruders, this behaviour intensifies in the reproduction period.
A very social species that lives in large groups with a cooperative breeding system, all members participate in feeding and caring for the young. It builds its nests in the form of a bowl in the trees, at a height of 2-3 metres. The clutch consists of 3 to 5 eggs which will only be incubated by the female until they hatch 17-18 days later and during this time the male will be responsible for feeding the female.
