WESTERN SCRUB JAY DRESS

"....swooping blue iridescent streaks, angling through slant shafts of the sun between columned redwoods, their raucous bravado my guiltful delight" 

William Everson, The Masks of Drought

KILLER BLUE

Wear the most beautiful BLUE in the state of California -- next to the ocean, of course!  The Western scrub jay dress is patterned with graceful blue and grey tail feathers, spread for flight.  This common bird is nothing short of extraordinary, known for its exceptional INTELLIGENCE (their brain-to-body mass ratio rivals that of chimpanzees + cetaceans), their raw, sexy AUDACITY, MISCHIEVOUSNESS, great FORESIGHT, and unapologetic CONFIDENCE.  Scrub jays can remember locations of up to 200 food caches, and are good at planning for the future.  While they are quite assertive, this animated bird also exhibits EMPATHY - as they are known to hold vocal funerals for fellow jays. Scrub jays have planted a lot of our oak trees here in California - they make their presence known in more ways than one! 

This dress is definitely a head turner, whether you take it to the streets of San Francisco, or a remote beach in Big Sur. Soft cotton with a bit of stretch flatters your figure with some forgiveness. Dress it up with your favorite pair of boots and earrings, or wear it with nothing more than your own confidence and big spirit.  

HABITAT + LIFESTYLE

The Western scrub jay range extends from southern Washington to central Texas and central Mexico. On the Central Coast of California, it is mainly found in chaparral, coastal sage scrub, and oak woodland.  Jays eat mostly insects and fruit during spring and summer, and switch to nuts and seeds during fall and winter. Populations of jays that evolved in oak habitats developed stouter, more hooked beaks adept for driving acorns open. They also eat small animals including lizards and sometimes nesting birds.  They can live up to fifteen years!

STATUS

The Western scrub jay is quite common, and not considered to be a threatened or endangered species.

Tanja is the Executive Director of MEarth in Carmel, California, where she passionately manifests the organization's mission to educate and inspire local youth through experiential agrarian + environmental stewardship.

When not instilling youth with a lasting sense of stewardship for the Earth or raising awareness in our community, Tanja can (or can't!) be found adventuring in the remote backcountry of the Ventana Wilderness, soaking in the hot springs at Esalen, paddleboarding with dolphins at Carmel Beach, sneaking a yoga session into her busy day, canning pickled vegetables, or curling up by the fire with her dog Bella.
