Yellow-headed Blackbird, Male


One day this bird overheard people talking about their vacation.

Excited with the possibility, he hurried home.

“Here’s a great idea! Let’s go on a vacation!”

Yellow-headed Blackbirds (They can have large families.)


“What’s that?” they replied.

“First we fly to a special place.

Then we spend our time outdoors, playing, relaxing, and enjoying the scenery.

And we eat foods we enjoy.

And we take naps whenever we want.

Then, best of all, we leave all our problems behind.”

“Is that it?”

“Yes!”

“We like it.”

“So when do you want to go?”

“We’re on vacation right now.”

Much success,

Steve Kaye

PS: Please know that taking family photos is always a challenge. For example, someone always looks away from the camera. At least, this time, no one blinked.


Help Birds Tip

Choose a bird-friendly vacation.

For example, you might:

✅ Visit a National Park where you can enjoy the outdoors, learn about Nature, and see birds.

✅ Plan eco-friendly travel, such as by Amtrak. Then the ride becomes part of the adventure.

✅ Go to one destination and then stay there, instead of hopping about from place to place.

✅ Check the Audubon Chapter for activities near your destination. Start at: Audubon Near You

✅ Learn how to take better vacation photos in my (revised, improved, better-than-ever) next Photo Class, Sept. 9, 2018, from 1 to 4:00 PM at the Fullerton Arboretum. Find details at: Photo Class

✅ Bonus Idea: Go on mini-vacations by visiting local parks, gardens, and arboretums. Any time spent outside, even by walking about in your neighborhood, is healthy.
