Bluejays and (blue) grass

With the warm weather arriving early this year, spring is well underway with trees greening and plants blooming and animals busy nest building. The wooded area outside our kitchen window has become a favourite place of bluejays to gather nest material - I've counted up to 8 birds at one time picking up twigs and fighting over the best pieces.

The higher temperatures and frequent rain have also helped the grass germinate and thicken well.

We've also had pairs of geese and pairs of ducks landing on the pond in the mornings.
