I opened the door this morning to see what I could see, and was surprised at how warm it felt, even though it was in the lower 40s. I decided to get my camera to see if I could find any wildlife, as I hadn't gotten any photos this week. As I was walking to my veggie garden, I saw the light chested squirrel across the street, and used my zoom to get some pics.
As I walked into the garden, I scared up a dove, which perched on a wire, so I was able to take a few photos before it flew off. The one of it looking back at me didn't turn out because I didn't hold the camera still.
Some sparrows flew around at my arrival, too, landing here and there to get away from me. This is my neighbor's bush.
When I walked to my garden across the street, I saw the squirrel near the trellis, and went there first before looking for birds.
I took lots of photos of branches before getting a few of a blue jay. They aren't the best photos, but I was tickled to have captured them, as the jay was trying to avoid getting its photo taken.
I also saw a bird with the coloring of a woodpecker I've seen around, but it flew off too quickly for me.
