Seeking Shelter

This is a dark photo, but I wanted to show how dark it was here around 5:00 PM on June 1. We had a heck of a storm - tornado warning, wind, rain, hail, lightning, etc. I started to go outside to take photos, but I spotted this poor little blackbird under the table. He didn't fly away when I opened the door, so I was worried he'd gotten hurt. Later he hopped into this position, and he eventually flew off.

 

Steve said there were a bunch of birds sitting under my pickup in the driveway, and a neighbor ended up with an OWL perched on top of her pergola for most of the following day.
