I couldn't walk at lunchtime today, and boy, did I miss it. Since I had the chance, I took a walk during the last hour of daylight. It was a little buggy, but it definitely helped melt away the stress of the day.
Great Blue Heron flyover
By the way, there are baby Bluebirds in the nest box at my house! I peeked the other day. Don't ask me how many, but I assume all five eggs hatched. They were ugly and naked and tiny and most of them were sleeping. One had its beak gaping open. They were not making any noise at all. I only looked a few seconds because I didn't want to draw any attention to them or make the parents too anxious. According to All About Birds, the nestling period can last up to 3 weeks, so I'll have another chance to peek at them.
