On Wednesday, Lyn looked out the window and got too excited to verbalize well. She softly called to Mom and repeated "Come slow!" several times. When Mom got to the window, she found that Lyn was excited to see a Mountain Jay that was visiting their yard. He quickly figured out where there was fresh water and seed to be found and was sitting on the hummingbird feeder when Lyn spotted him. They're a fairly common bird in the mountains of New Mexico but this was the first one they've seen in their neighborhood.
The bird stayed the night and set up quite a conversation Thursday morning while feeding. Lyn didn't see him the rest of the day, but she was very excited by his visit.
Perhaps she'll see him again today. I'm sure she'd be thrilled if she did.
