This bird looks like a blue jay but without its major marks: no crest, no white strips/spots. It is a little smaller than a blue jay but bigger than 6 inches of the most song bird size. Its thick and dark beak is a jay or crow like. I found it under the bushes. I clearly saw the blue as the major tone for this bird (thus, ruled out the common crackle). Only possible candidate is the gray jay but feather did not match.
