Title: A singular Garrulus lanceolatus-like reversionary jay specimen
Year: 1981
Volume: 20
Pages: 65-68.

Abstract: The author has found a Jay (Garrulus glandarius Linneaus) specimen collected in the German Democratic Republic with some very interesting aberrational features. One of them and most important was the colouring and pattern of its tail. This characteristic was the same as in the Black-throated Jay (Garrulus lanceolatus). Besides this atavistic mark there were two others, too. All these reversionary trends prove close relationship between the two species.
