Two birds

Since I changed my office I haven't gotten many bird photos, but here are a couple - a blue jay and a Carolina wren.

Birds say: "That good-for-nothing Punxsutawney Phil predicted Spring would be early, but he lied."

BTW, is that green vine in the second photo poison ivy?

Yes, I think it is.

Most poison ivy around here (NW Georgia) loses its leaves in the winter, so it might not be. On the other hand, unless I'm positive, I give anything with "leaves of three" a wide berth.

I suspect the poison ivy's just leafing out in the DC area now, as those look like fresh leaves.

I got the worst case one early spring when I was clearing brush and pruning bushes, and there was a leafless vine I was taking out of the hedge. Although I was wearing long sleeves and work gloves, I occasionally stopped to wiupe the sweat of honest labor(!) from my face. Turns out the bare vines are also poisonous -- fuzzy and rust-colored, FYI. One eyelid swelled totally shut, which was the worst of the lesions.
