My Saturday morning began with a visit from Mr. Bluejay, and it got better from there. This was taken about 50 feet away through my kitchen window.
Hubby wanted to go with me on my nature excursion so we went to my old standby, Nob Hill. I was hoping to see more of the Yellow-crowned Night Herons, but they weren't in the same spot as the day before. We walked a pretty good ways down the hiking trail and found them. A whole family! Off I went into some tall weeds, being as quiet as possible. Finally, I got to the edge of the embankment, sat down, and observed. I didn't care about chiggers, bugs, or snakes. My focus was on these birds and their behavior. They are fascinating! And beautiful.

|Can't a squirrel get any rest around here?|
|That clicking sound is making me very sleepy.|
I'm glad we went out yesterday because it is storming here today. I've got a choice: process more photos or clean house. Hmmm....I know what I'd rather do. Please don't drop by my house for a surprise visit anytime soon. :) Off to church now! Later gators.
