On this foggy morning, a flock of 30+ Blue Jays — evidently migrants — descended suddenly on our back yard. They gorged themselves for a few minutes on the white millet scattered on the ground, then departed as quickly as they had come.
At my old hawk watch, such migranting bands were a common sight in the fall. This is the first time I’ve seen so many at once in the spring.
