Started this morning by spotting the first fawn of the season.  Tiny with wobbly legs crossing the road behind its mom.  Then the chickadees and a pine squirrel were friendly and let me get within minimum focal distance off my 300mm lens.  A female ruby-throated hummingbird visited but didn't like how close I was.  Several blue jays hopped in the trees above, making an interesting variety of calls.  An unknown flycatcher sang me a song.  Later on the drive to work, I spotted an osprey building a nest.
