 Unknown Jay bird?  Name?

Unknown Jay bird? Name?

Live in San Gabriel Valley (Southern California) outside of Los Angeles. Was at Los Angeles Arboretum and shot the attached picture which I think is from the "Jay" family of birds? Is this a common bird in Southern California? Male/Female? Name of the bird?


Thanks!

This bird s native to Asia. Introduced to North America by an escaped bird from cages. If you see one in California it probably is another escapee! Pretty bird!
