This morning was sunny and humid and full of busy birds—food to find, multiple mouths to feed, dangers to watch out for. It’s that time of year when the adults will hop up and holler at you, presenting lots of photo ops. Nice.

It’s also that time of year—right around the Fourth of July—when the wood lilies bloom. And when the wood lilies bloom, I know to look for young blueberries. And, what do you know, there they were.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
