Blue Jay nest
(if you click to enlarge, you should be able to just make out the top of the jay's head)
This Northern Mockingbird was scolding me and nervously hopping around from stone to stone. I assume a nest is nearby.
Lilacs are almost at peak bloom, and this one smelled divine. I only wish there was a way to share the perfume with you! I forget from year to year how wonderful they are....
