Another picture from the Chippewa Nature Center near Midland, Michigan. A couple of online photographer colleagues tell me this is an indigo bunting. (I wouldn't know. Where I grew up the only birds we had were pigeons and starlings.) It was passing the time along one of the trails and had no fear of a tall person pointing a long cylindrical object at it.
We're home. O'Hare was a madhouse yesterday afternoon and evening with many severely delayed flights. Our connection to St. Louis was showing more than three hours behind schedule, which would have put us in well after midnight. A kindly airline agent got us on an earlier flight to STL that was running five hours late but was departing soon. So we are back but our bags are in Chicago. They should be delivered sometime today.
