Having a day away from the library, I went to the Morton Arboretum, where the daffodils were in bloom. There is a glade full of them. It was also a good birding day, as I saw a bluebird, a green-winged teal, a great blue heron, and a red-tailed hawk. I also saw a downy woodpecker drive at a robin who called out for help, and three robins chased the woodpecker away.
