A few days ago I was in the kitchen getting some stuff done before I had to start work. The patio door was open and I heard squawking outside. I thought it was just the friendly magpies and I love their sound. So, I looked outside and saw a brilliant blue bird fly into the trees in the next yard. Then 4 more flew by! They were so gorgeous. I ran inside and grabbed my camera. Luckily for me one of them flew to a branch that was in the open and I got a perfect shot. Again I don't know the exact name but I'd call it a blue bird. Any of you know? I just love birds. Well, I love animals.
