BHCL Does Not Disappoint

I only had time for a half hour walk at BHCL this morning.  Right out of the car, I had a Gray Catbird sighting.  I didn't think it was anything too special until I after I went home and saw the photo on the computer screen.  This catbird has a bill deformity, which puts it into the "unusual" category, at least for me!

The sky was stealing the show this morning.

Or was it the meadow grasses?

I really didn't intend to walk at BHCL again at lunch, but I wasn't able to resist.  So...
