Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Blue Jay.
Yes. Like the bird. I find it ironic that since we started this Kona Cotton color of the day at the beginning of the year, more than half the year and half the colors have already been highlighted.
Blue Jay is a light to medium blue that would be a solid starter for other blues, creams and whites. Much like this quilt below!
According to allaboutbirds.org, blue jays have melanin in their feathers that are brown. But the blue color is caused by scattering light through modified cells on the surface of the feather barbs. Also, the extensive variations of the colors across the bridle on the face, nape and neck helps the blue jays to recognize each other like we do with facial recognition. Isn’t that cool?
So what can we do with blue jay? The color, not the bird. Let’s see……
I happen to love the most colorful birds like Blue Jays, Cardinals and Peacocks. I like to watch birds occasionally, but my daughter’s father in law is a very avid bird watcher and can tell you so much about them and what kind of bird they are.
