Looks like a Black-chested Jay to me.

Or Plush-crested Jay
as it's a cage bird (not permitted under posting rules usually) it's impossible to use range as a guide.

This one was at the Columbia National Avery near Cartagena. The Avery is very large and birds are allowed to fly about in natural environments. We were only the second group to be allowed to visit the Avery. Was told the majority of the birds were from surrounding area and were being rehabilitated for release into the wild. They were either injured or being kept illegally as pets. This one chose to perch next to a chain link fence intended to keep humans from tramping through the natural vegetation. I apologize for misusing this site. I do have a number of photos of macaws, parrots and toucans I need help with. Would it be better for me to request one of you experts to take a look at them at one of my galleries rather than posting photos here? The guides that took us through the Avery were Spanish speaking and not very good at giving us correct names.

Doesn't bother me actually Greig,
just seems to be my posts that get removed?

As far as I can see, none of these Jays actually occur in Colombia?

The Black-chested is included in the Columbia bird list I have been using.
Thanks for your ongoing help!

OK that's fine but can't find it in the book?

The Black-chested is in my Hilty and Brown guidebook, and are described as common in dry to humid forests in N Colombia.
