Exercise: I walked for 10 miles this morning and it kick my backside for sure. I use to take these kinds of long walks but I have put on weight and it makes a big difference. My friend told me she was going to head into the city today and may not walk so I took on the big walk by starting early to avoid the heat.

Flicker and Jay

Pictures: My feeder has slowly been picking up new birds from the area but sadly it will be time to move soon. Here is a Northern Flicker and Staller’s Jay. I started putting out un-shelled peanuts and the Jays have figure out that they likes them 🙂 They also like the suet I put out.

As always click the images twice for the larger size pictures.

Pair of Western Bluebirds

Pictures: Male and female Western Bluebirds.

When I have a bird with bright colors like red, blue or yellow it is sometime hard to get good detail and not blow out the colors in the brightly colored feathers. Especially when taking the picture in bright sunlight.

Exercise: We had a good walk this morning and we both forgot to turn on a walking apps on until we were near a mile or so in ….. so we think it was between a 1/2 mile or one mile and our apps were saying 4 miles when we got back so, ….. (adding…… ) 4.5 to 5 miles of walking 🙂
