Hiking the Ostravice!

It was cold, drizzly and a bit foggy this morning. If I were at home, it would be a perfect day to hang out in front of the fireplace and not go birding. However, given Molly and I are in the Czech Republic, we went birding with an initial stop at a coffee shop for Molly followed by a hike along the banks of the Ostravice River in Ostrava.

Like at home, most birds have flown south to warmer climates, but I spied this Eurasian Jay feeding amonst the crows. While this bird might be rather common for the locals, it was neat find for me … with its perfect pose juxtaposed the fallen leaves.
