It has been so hot that I've been eating a Popsicle treat every so often. The sticks have these really bad jokes on them. Some are bird related so I saved them to share with you guys when the birding was really slow. Now seems like a good time to begin sprinkling you with some of them.
Q: Why did the turkey have to leave the supper table?

A: He was gobbling his food.

On a bird sighting note the blackbirds are still increasing in numbers at Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area in southern Boone County. I searched hard for a Yellow-headed without luck. I'll keep at it. I did see several Black Terns and the Least Tern reported by others when I was down there last night.
