Re: blue jay bathing lesson

Thanks for sharing that.

I needed that.  

I'd been watching Doves since March nesting in a hanging basket outside 
the porch.  One of the eggs hatched and for about three days
we could see the chick being fed and happily raised and all, but after some 
swirly/twirly thing went through our yard last week, the poor little thing 
was gone.

It took this tree with it as well:


The swirly/twirly went on to rip off the sheet metal of a structure 1/4 a
mile up the road, and then flatten a huge stand of trees.  This was at 1:30am,
but luckily, no people were hurt!

The Dove parents are still around... I hope they try again!
