Rainbow Jay

April Fool! Only kidding! I made this fun bird with Photoshop from the image below. 
  The real blue jay, Cyanocitta cristata.  Click to enlarge the photos.                         

I was inspired by the occasional "rainbow" birds I see on Facebook -- all made pretty much the same way. Click here to see a famous one that went viral.  Although nature can be amazing, you can't believe everything you see on the Internet. Our standard blue jay is pretty impressive without computer generated enhancements.


  1. so is it real or not did not make it very clear i think it is fake but i want one as a pet if i could but is probably endangered

    1. No it is not real. The way a jay looks is in the lower photo. I colored the top one for fun for an April fool's joke. If it were real, I'd like to have one, too.
