Lovely shots, I've missed every chance of seeing one this year, when I go where they are reported they are where I was the day before, so frustrating!

Beautiful shots Stephen... that portrait is a classic shot of a "fruit eater" that pass through here each winter... :)

Alas, this year I had thousands of American Robins pass through here in October and ate all the crab apples and mountain ash berries in the county... so few waxwings will stay for the winter.

Great set Stephen. Way to pull out the detail in these silk beauties.

Wonderful shots, Stephen. I always think of these as classy birds. I don't think I've ever seen any here in winter though.

Thanks Dave. We seem to have a few Bohemian flocks sticking around for now.
