A Walk Among The Waxwings

I was walking with my daughter this morning when a rustling in some nearby branches caught my attention.  The cause of the rustling (much to my delight) was a mob of Cedar Waxwings seeking berries for their breakfast.

They didn’t sit still for long and (much to my dismay) kept disappearing behind leaves and twigs, but I did manage to capture a few in photos.

These lovely birds haven’t been hanging out in my yard this season (much to my disappointment) so it was a treat to get some pictures of them this morning.  Before leaving them to their munching, I did remind them that should they desire a beverage to wash down those berries, there is a fountain of fresh water just waiting for them in my backyard!

  1. This is a beautiful series, such lovely birds! Good work Kathy!… Please don’t call me Sir, H.J. would be fine! 🙂

  2. They are soooo gorgeous! They almost look velvety – the colors and the softness is so unique. I wish they would visit me in Mars! We don’t seem to see these beauties.

  3. Great waxwing captures. I used to see them along the trail in my park, but then river bank reclamation caused some trees to be cut…the trees I saw them in most often. Sigh.

  4. I love these birds and their awesome color contrasts! Wonderful, beautiful captures, Kathy! So glad you came across them, and love hearing your daughter is home for you to enjoy! 🙂

    1. I was so glad I carried my camera when we walked that day. 🙂
      My daughter was home for spring break, and I thoroughly enjoyed her visit.
