Wow, those are beautiful feathers. Interesting that the body is black & white and the tail is, uh... awesome for lack of a better term. Hazel maybe?

They are Irridescent green/aqua/blue/copper/violet/black like carnival glass!
Magpie is the correct entity...
Wood Ducks are here as well, they are another great to see plumage.

Crap, wrong thread. ;)




Carnival glass!   ;D

Seems we in the west take regularly this bird for granted. 
It really is an amazingly beautiful corvid
and is commonly slapped with derision and lead across its range.

Cool that as you move south...they turn into magpie-jays.
This is my all-time favorite, although I never got to see one:



Black-throated Magpie jay
