Hi Everyone

Well the first day of this trip was all meetings, did not get a chance to get out and get any shots. In fact when I finally got back to the hotel I just grab a quick byte to eat then passed out on the bed. Today was much the same, meetings started at 8 am and finished at 5 pm. When I finally got outside the skies were dark and it looked like all hell was going to break loose! Oh well I head back to Delaware tomorrow, just a bit upset I was not able to get some shots from Virginia, this state has so many birds, especially hawks!

So since I am sitting in the hotel room bored, I have already seen all the movies they offer, figured I would try to catch up with you all and post one from the archives. Just a Blue jay, hope you like. I should be home late tomorrow and back to normal, talk to you all later.
