This morning walking Spunky on our usual path, we happened upon a migrating flock of Cedar Waxwings. They were perched together high up in the trees bordering our development and, as luck would have it, the sun came out as we approached and illuminated the birds brilliantly! Be sure to click on the photos to see an enlarged version, all the better to see the bright yellow and tiny bit of red markings.
Below, a Robin is in the lower left side. That gives you a comparison in size for the Waxwings vs. Robins. They are actually quite a bit smaller, although in this photo, it was 30 degrees out and the Waxwings all had their feathers fluffed out, making them appear much larger than they are. The Robin, on the other hand, is NOT fluffed out, but is quite used to the cold!
When snow storm Toby blew through earlier this week, I took a few photos of some regular visitors to our porch feeders - Bluebirds. They don't look too pleased to be out in the storm!
That's it for today. Off to begin some new drawings!
