Western Scrub JayWestern Scrub Jay is such a pretty bird. Are they as mischievous as the common jay? I am trying my best to attract in more species, even as I enjoy the few varieties that do come to my feeders and water. I invite suggestions. I use bird songs taken from the internet so, besides the ever present sparrows and starlings, I have hummers, a very few goldfinch, and chickadees.  Have not seen a bluebird since I was a child. 

Living in Washington, DC and central and western Texas, we had all kinds of species come for treats. I don't have any desire to move back to any of those places.

Yeah it's hot here too! But getting cooler as the summer is over now. I'm so ready for the fall! Winter Migration is coming up! All kinds of birds to see!
I feel for your hubby Melinda! Must be tough.
And Patricia with the fires it must be hard on your asthma.
I hope things get cooler as fall approaches.
