Today brought the Cedar Waxwings through Burkett. I was at work, but Ernie took camera in hand. He couldn’t figure out how to work the zoom, but I think he did pretty darned good capturing the birds on the fountain. You can click on the photo to enlarge it!
Guess the guys needed a drink! The fountain was icing over, so some of the birdies are “ice skating”. Cedar Waxwings are migratory and we see them several times a year if we’re home when they come through. They love the berries off the Hackberry trees. Come Spring, they’ll eat all the buds off the pear and apple trees in the neighborhood. Our neighbor curses them as they strip his fruit trees.
What gorgeous birds though!
