When asked which word would best fill in the blank in the title, most would immediately answer “Batman”; and although I am a fan of any good superhero flick, my answer these days would have to be “Waxwings.” You see, lately, whenever I see a flock of Robins in a bit of a frenzy, there tends to be an earful of Waxwings right in their midst.
These two types of birds share a craving for berries and can strip a tree clean in no time. Some eat from the branches…
…while others clean up the leftovers that litter the ground. I thought the yellow blur from my neighbor’s car made a nice buttery background.
Of course, after berry feasting they are in need of a beverage.
I felt sorry for the fellows below. They were drinking a bit of rain water from the one dish that I hadn’t cleaned and filled.
Once their bellies are full and their thirst has been quenched, they will often lounge on the limbs for awhile.
These birds truly do take my breath away!
