As the name implies; the Florida Scrub Jay is restricted to Florida. It was originally found there 100 years before other jays were identified in other areas of North America. They eat arthropods and acorns; crickets and grasshoppers preferred. Florida Scrub Jays have been widely studied in recent decades in the oak scrub areas of the state.
