Blue Jays?

Subject: Blue Jays?

Am after some collective advice from list members.

I've just received one of our 'customer call centre' requests asking about
Blue Jays.  The observer claims the bird is the last one left (!) and
spends it day trying to find conspecifics.  The caller lives in Wodonga in
northern Victoria.

My question is, what is (in Australia) a Blue Jay?  A corvid?

If it is a corvid they are of course not threatened, but am interested to
know how birdos would respond to this sort of query (which seems genuine).

Please advise me directly.
