I was up at about 4am, as usual, and looked outside. It was still dark but clear and I could see two planets bright in the sky.
However by the time we were ready to walk to Hynes the clear sky had filled with a thick fog as you can see in the image top left. It was very refreshing to have cool air for a change.
As we walked we could hear some crows squawking about the fog but couldn't see them. I kept looking toward the sound they were making and saw them perched on top of a street light. As we walked they moved from one street light to the next as if they used them as markers to know where they were going.
We found Hynes, right where it usually is, and by the time we had finished our breakfast the fog had completely disappeared.
Blue Jays Enjoying My Raspberries
Once we returned home Jenny noticed a blue jay in my little raspberry patch. He was stealing my raspberries. She said she was going to have a talk with them and went back outside. The next thing I noticed was Jenny stealing raspberries. She can be so bad.
I had more raspberries this year than any other year so far and I'm hoping for even more next year.
I noticed the blue jay wasn't very big compared to the others we see in our yard so I'm thinking this is a young blue jay. I think the entire family was here early in the week as I got a picture of five blue jays sitting on our Clematis trellis.
There were six of them but just as I was ready to take the picture one took off leaving an empty spot on the trellis. That is the most blue jays I have even seen in our yard at one time. Most of the time there is only two and is why I'm thinking they are a family.
