On our way to the museums the other day we stopped at the Naval Memorial to eat our lunch. It is right outside our metro stop (Archives/Navy Memorial), and a fun memorial with a fountain.

And we saw the cutest bird, who was banded, which resulted a whole bunch of questions from Q5 about the bands and how the bird was caught and why it might be banded.

It fluttered around us for a bit, then over came two more birds ... another adult and a baby. And I had the hardest time catching them on the camera until the baby bird opened it's mouth wide and asked for some lunch.

CUTE. I loved that. I don't believe I've seen that in person before, only on TV.
