Did anyone see Big Bang Theory tonight?  There was a large, mostly blue bird with a very long tail in Sheldon's apartment.  It had a black crest and some white on its wings.  I've never seen one like it before.

I have posted a link to a pic from BB Theory. Is this the bird, Dax?

Looks like some type of Jay to me... just not sure which yet. Will look a bit further.

That was a great episode, BTW did anyone else get the irony that the actor Jim Parsons(Sheldon) was also in "The Big Year" and played an avid birder?
