From my Christmas vacation in Mexico

The Yucatan jay (Cyanocorax yucatanicus) is a species of bird in the Corvidae family, the crows and their allies.
It is found primarily in the Yucatán Peninsula, which comprises the northern part of the nation of Belize; and Guatemala.
The jays approximately 30 cm (12 in) long. Adults are black, with cerulean blue wings, mantle, and tail. They have black bills, black eye rings, and yellow legs. Juvenile Yucatán jays have completely yellow bare parts and white, rather than black, body plumage. They molt out of the white plumage by September or October, but retain the yellow bill and eye ring for a few more months. They also have pale-tipped retrices, which the adults lack.

What a beautiful bird Mario,
Photographed in the best of light and displaying beautiful colors and markings. The shade of blue in it's tail, wing and back contrasts perfectly with it's coal black head and beak. Wonderful eye contact and just the right exposure. Great capture!!
