Just too hot

Here is a blue jay trying to bear the heat tuesday. It barely closed it's mouth, and held it's wings away from it's body, while looking at the food and water i put out. I'm not exaggerating when i say it's been hot, it hit officially 99F here in town, a record and over 20 degrees over average. It's been this way for a few days, over the weekend it got near 90, but the last two days were high 90s. It's actually buckled pavement on the interstate near town, and closed several of them. Pretty crazy. The squirrels were also having a rough time by my deck, moving slowly, they grabbed some of the food, but not as eagerly as usual. It does look like the temps will be going back to normal soon, at least i hope so.

Even the birds are affected by the heat. Maybe that blue jay is considering shedding his/her feathers off just to get cool.
