    We have been blessed with the Cedar Waxwing migrations for the past three years. These birds are amazing; I love to watch them feed. It’s a sight to behold. They will hand off berries down the line…and then there is the beauty of seeing them amass, one huge flock. They are happy campers, and evidently can become drunk when overfeeding upon certain berries. LOL. (I’ve not seen any drop before my eyes, a good thing too, I’d have to share my coffee.) ;)

    These photo’s captured minute details that I am not able to define, clearly, with my little cheap binoculars (the yellow and red tips, specifically).

    As always, I LOVE your work. You rock this world, girl!

    These lovely birds are actually Bohemian Waxwings, the northern cousins of the Cedar. You can tell by their reddish under-tail and their overall grayer appearance. Very beautiful and still have the tendency to get accidentally drunk on the wrong berries!
