Oh Those Glorious Cedar Waxwings Came to Visit~



Rather an easy week to write up and I hope that you will enjoy them.  Cedar Waxwings came to visit our area the past 10 days.  They began way up high in the Cedar trees and finally made their way down to the Honeysuckle berries.  I went across the lane yesterday and for the first time ever, I happened upon them getting a drink of water at the neighbor's little fish pond.  The landscape images are on my property.  Have a very happy week doing whatever brings you joy and blessings~

  10. They really are gorgeous and this was such a pretty spot to photograph. They pass through Florida later in the year but I'll be on the look out for them now! Hugs!

  13. An excellent study on this interesting bird Mary. I have only ever seen one out back and that's been several years ago. Another time I was on holiday and saw a whole bunch of them which I was in awe of. Great photos!

  16. Good Morning Mary, I'm so thrilled for you that the Cedar Waxwings put on a great show. You didn't waste the opportunity with those lovely pictures. I'm thinking you have mixed feelings that their arrival signals winter on its way. Our Bohemian Wawings have yet to arrive from Europe,if they do at all, as in some winters just a few in other years an invasion. Time and the berry crop will tell. I'm rained off today but hoping for some out time soon.

    Have a great day.

  22. I love these birds! Have never seen so many in one place! Watching them feed each other holly berries in our backyard was the thing that really got me interested in birding (when we had our home herein Oregon before our RV life).

  24. What a beautiful set of pictures. They are beautiful birds and we get them here, often mixed with their bigger cousins, the Bohemian Waxwings. Great post.
