Well, after hurting my neck on Friday (Pilates. I don't want to talk about it.) and staying in for the entire weekend (uuuuuuuuughghghghgh) it was great to get out and walk in the park again today! Jack was off work so he came with me, and as we were walking up towards the lake a yellow-rump flew across the road right in front of us. It was hilarious! Watching them fly away is like watching a very mini flicker, they both have that rump spot drawing your eye. At the bridge on the way to the upper lobe we saw this pretty common yellow-throat.
|Black-throated Blue Warbler|
|Blue Grosbeak (female)|
As we left her Jack was worn out and ready to head home. We did see several other birds, and it was a great time! :-)
