Cedar Waxwings picking over the same patch of dried berries that the Robins found appealing in yesterdays post. We only see the Waxwings for a week each year and only in the fall. This year they were right on schedule and arrived sometime during the last week of November and had departed by last weekends walk through the woods.

  1. You captured the elegance of what I think is one of America’s most beautiful birds, Mike. We don’t often see the lemon belly so easily, and of course the eye glint is wonderful. You made the best of that one week.

      1. They are irruptive visitors to the UK when the competition for food gets too wide in their Scandinavian breeding grounds. It’s hard to predict where they will show up and when so it was quite a privilege.

  2. Great captures of these beauties. We had the same experience with them when we lived in Connecticut when you might be lucky enough to see them strip a tree of its dried fruit. And then they were gone.
