On Memorial day when I took the kids for a walk down to the local park to play, I got these beautiful pictures of a bird in a bush. It took a while to figure out where exactly the tweeting was coming from, and then some patient bird stalking to get close enough to get these, but they turned out lovely. Although it was fairly easy to learn that the bird was a white crested sparrow, it took more searching than usual to discover that the bush with its clusters of blue blossoms is a blue blossom Ceanothus Thyrsiflorus bush which is native to California.
