I started yesterday at 6 a.m. with my camera. My first and only subject was a scrub jay, a few feet from the front door. I knew right away what the bird had in its beak. I was drying nasturtium pods on a paper plate in the sun the day before. The jay reminded me that I had neglected to bring them in at night. FYI: day break starts around 5:45 a.m. with a chorus of panicked shrieks from the quails.
