Just one for today. I was looking around the backyard and saw a bird high up in a tree–most likely a mockingbird, since they like to sit at the top of that tree. I took a couple of photos and when I looked at them afterward, I saw the unmistakable blue colors and patterns of a Blue Jay’s back. Blue Jays are pretty common birds, but not in our yard. They seem to live in pine trees behind the houses across the street, but every once in awhile I’ll see one in the yard.
