How to draw a blue jay tutorial

Let`s learn how to draw a blue jay.

Alas, again I am writing a lesson on how to draw a bird that I have never seen in my life. In childhood I was told about the bluebird of happiness. And I thought it was just a fairy tale, but it’s also appeared that there really is a blue bird in the world. And then it turned out that the jay can imitate the voices and they even call her a mockingbird. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is one of my favorite books. So I definitely need to draw this unseen mysterious bird.
