This Weekend Was For the Birds

In all senses. The sinus ick I had dragged me to rock-bottom Thursday; Friday and Saturday were a slow, up-hill climb. Head full of snot = for the birds.

The Byrd Theatre Foundation had a fund-raiser showing of Hitchcock's The Birds. A fine, creepy movie, marred only a tiny bit but the younger folks laughing at -- surely not the fact of violent death, but by the catsup-y-ness of the special effects? Plus, we got to hear the Mighty Wurlitzer.

I was just well enough this morning for a leisurely bit of birdwatching by the river. Some highlights:
palm warbler, black-throated blue warbler (pictured below and here), blue grosbeak, ovenbird.
