(In which I ramble on and on about how much I love…)
My first bird of the new year is…
the Blue Jay!!!
I love Blue Jays, I think they’re so sassy. Like Mockingbird level sassy.
Honesty has been a big personal theme for me over the last few months. I was in a bad slump and I had to take a hard look at myself and get brutally honest with how I want to proceed with the rest of my life. Dramatic, I know. But necessary.
The Blue Jay is a good reminder for me to keep striving for positive change.
When I woke up this morning the first bird I thought I would see and expected to see was a Robin. Tons of them have been hanging out in my front yard recently. But the Blue Jay snagged the title this year. They are a pretty common sight year round at my house.
The second bird I saw was a female Cardinal. One half of the mated pairs in my back yard was killed by something a few weeks ago so it was nice to see another female today.
Bring it on, 2020!
