“We’re having a heatwave
A tropical heatwave
The temperature’s rising,
It isn’t surprising,
She certainly can can-can…” ~ Irving Berlin
Yes, even the birds are feeling the heat. Right below the bird feeder laid Mrs Blue Jay, catching the very mild breeze, spreading her feathers and trying to cool down.
Sometimes I do wonder how Mother Nature designs her birds, their size, their beaks, their colors and their feathers’ patterns.
She is just so pretty! I’m 90% sure it’s a female (male ones usually have more blue under their chins) and she’s probably squawking a request for Ma Nature to give us some rain because we need it … badly.
