bird family picnic

There's a family of blackbirds in my front yard right now having a picnic in the wet grass. The parents are shiny black so dark their heads look like polished purple metal, and the little ones are spotty brown over black. They're poking their beaks into the little ponds all over the front yard, left-over water from last night's huge downpour.

Ha! A young squirrel just leaped from one branch to another, missed, and landed in a puddle. Now he's eating the little helicopter-seeds in the grass. No harm done, I guess. Young'uns are all made out of rubber.
