M is for Murder
Well, maybe it was only an attempted murder!
We're enjoying the birds at Sunset Bay State Park, even the crows, and there are a lot of them! Of course, when I wanted a photo of a group of crows (a murder), I could only find these two. We have learned to never leave anything edible untended. Our first evening here a crow made off with half of a hamburger bun!
Look at the beautiful blue color of this Steller's Jay.
I couldn't get close enough to this woodpecker to get a good picture. He was feasting on the swarming ants in the fence post.
We've got A Field Guide to Western Birds and some good binoculars. I think I might be able to identify a few birds by the time we leave here.
