We had a nice little, local birding adventure this morning. Many things combined that influenced our lack of ambition for birding of late; poor spring migration turnout, lousy weather, and work and travel for Mike. We had such success at spotting what we set out for and more this morning, that it really renewed our enjoyment for birding. It was VERY hot, though, even early this morning, so we enjoyed for as long as we could out in the fields and then headed off for other adventures. As an aside, there is a blueberry bash this weekend at Terhune Farms, and Chris thinks the blueberry pie is the best piece of pie she's ever had!

The bluejays are lovely to look at all year since their plumage is always a vibrant blue. While lovely to look at, we do often find them to be the bullies of the yard with their loud calls and obnoxious behavior. Babies are always cute, and even though they were making quite a racket, they were enjoying the yard and bath so much one day that even Chris couldn't help reaching for the camera.
