Even the birds are staying in the shade trying to stay cool. Hopefully this "heat dome" will be ending after today and then temperatures will go down slightly. They'll still be above normal but at least not in triple digits. This robin has a nice juicy caterpillar lunch Mourning dove staying cool under a tree
