We stopped before the road to see if we could find some Scrub Jays..

There was a prescribed burn here a few days before..

Looks like you had a great day. We had similar results on Bio Lab the other day. Viera was awesome yesterday. We managed to get an osprey and a bald eagle in flight. Eagle carrying a fish in its talons too! Lots of pics to sift through. Down day today.
