Birds on the morning walk
When we were walking this morning, we saw a number of Blue Jays flitting around from tree to tree. I managed to snatch a couple of photos, and this was one of the best. The Blue Jay doesn't appear very colourful because it was in the shade.
On our way back home, I heard a bird call and saw this juvenile Downy Woodpecker pecking at the top of this weed. Because the weed and the bird were swaying in the breeze, most of the photos were slightly blurry, and most of the clear photos were a bad angle of the young bird.
It was a gorgeous day, as this photo shows. You can also see how the grass has greened up after the rain.
