Very quiet day here. Rain outside, reading a book inside. How about some bird pictures?
This was actually one of a flock of six bluebirds I saw this week. One year, there was a pair that even stayed here through the winter. I love the bluebirds!
Of course, the starlings make their presence felt in the fall as they gather in huge flocks. But this one juvenile was just hanging out. I have to admit they are fairly attractive at this stage.
The oddity is this flying bird, captured mostly by luck on the Muskegon River. The picture is terrible, and I am only showing it too you because it's a bit of a puzzle. It's the size of a blue heron, and probably is a juvenile, or perhaps a leucistic one (mostly white), but the feet are quite pink. They really should be darker.
Sorry, but I have to get back to my book. It's totally compelling. (The Onion Field by Joseph Wambaugh)
