To all you Dads around here.
This is the zealous scrub jay dad who has been waking me up at 5am for weeks as he checks to make sure the cats are inside while his babies hop around on the fence nearby.
He hovers around just outside, checking in, at dinner time, too.
.....and pretty much hangs out nearby, any time, hovering, protecting...
(please excuse the cell phone photo quality)
~ Cheers, Dads, you done good ~
