Yesterday dawned with the sound of our lift pump alarming. It is ever so much worse than the most annoying alarm clock you could imagine. So we had the plumber here most of the day. And for that privilege, we paid him dearly. But we had little choice. Want to use the bathrooms again? Then pay the plumber to install a new pump.
The plumber spent a bit of time on the phone locating a pump. (We do not get cell phone reception at our house.) He was totally amazed at the variety of birds he saw coming to the feeders on our deck while he was inside. I didn't tell him, but we never have Blue Jays at the feeders. This sighting marked the second time in our eight years of living here.
He seemed quite at home

Did he hear me?

There are lots of Blue Jays in our area, staying in the woods and meadows. But I suppose even they want a little variety every now and then.
