One day earlier last week before the Fourth festivities, I noticed an odd array of birds.
Sitting on the neighbor’s fence: A robin, two blue jays, and a grackle. Of course, I ran for my camera!
And then, mama came along and off they both flew high in the trees leaving only the little robin on the fence. Not much of a week for bird watching as most of the evening skies filled with fireworks and loud booms. And I worked quite a bit before and after the holiday.
Other birds I spotted this week: lots of grackles and robins, the blue jays, cardinals, a blue heron flying over the pond at the end of the street, a mockingbird sitting in a tree on the playground at work, a random killdeer in a parking lot, and a few sparrows.
Oh, and in case you wondered, baby blue jays vocals are just as loud and possibly louder than the adult birds. Can’t miss them!
