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!

This is a beautiful series, such lovely birds! Good work Kathy!… Please don’t call me Sir, H.J. would be fine! 🙂
They are indeed beautiful…and H.J. it is. 🙂
Boy, they are chomping down on those berries.
They get into quite a berry frenzy. 🙂
I saw some once eating fermented berries. They were staggering. Hopefully, they sobered up okay.
FWI instead of DWI?
I see these at the lake sometimes and they have a little orange on them. Such beautiful birds! Lovely photos, Kathy! 💜
I always get so excited when I see them. 🙂
Thank you. 🙂
Beautiful photos Kathy!
Thank you. I hadn’t seen many Waxwings this season, so it was a delight to run into them on a morning walk. 🙂
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.
Velvety…perfect word for them. Velvety bandits. 🙂
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.
They do look velvety! Perfect description. Masked velvety beaks! 💜💜💜
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! 🙂
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.
Delightful. Love the action shots, a little more intimate than birds in pose.
