Western Scrub (Blue) Jay - Fly some fun with this colorful bird kite.

Our flying birds go together quickly and easily. And they fly on the lightest breezes. Use one to decorate the sky or brighten up a kid’s room. For extra fun, loft a flock!

Each bird kite is based on a flying creature well known in North America. Designed by kite artist Robert Brasington, they each hold the promise of short-term fun and long-term performance. To assemble, just pop the extended end of each wing rod into the white pocket on the opposite side of the kite. Attach your flying line to the bridle loop and send it soaring.

In flight, the wings will flex back. For changing winds, you can slide the bridle loop higher or lower for improved performance.

The Western Scrub Jay, is native to western North America. It ranges from southern Washington to central Texas and central Mexico. While many refer to scrub jays as "blue jays", the blue jay is a different species of bird entirely. The western scrub jay is nonmigratory and can be found in urban areas, where it can become tame and will come to bird feeders.
