Taking a break in the front yard this afternoon, I noticed the silence. The three young blue jays who had hatched out in the nest in the bushes outside my window, and had grown so rapidly (and screeched so loudly) for the last couple of weeks, were gone.There was no evidence that they had been eaten by cats, so I am assuming that they flew away. Ah, the peace and quiet!
Now, if only I could get my parents television to fly away. Heh.
