Lovely! I've never seen Bohemian waxwings, only Cedar waxwings.

Thanks. Sure works for me my outdoor thermometer quit working when the batteries froze. The local highway department weather stations weren't working either. The closest (about 40 air miles) weather station I could find was Old Faithful and it was -40 there (NOT wind chill). The local highway dept. station started working and reported -13 at 2:00 PM. Warmer now 9 above and snowing.

:-D

For some reason, my emojis aren't showing up-I did put a laughing face after my question above.
I know, we just have to take the bad with the good. Bet summers are awesome Vistas there.

They come in by the hundreds and clean all the berries in a day or two. Fun when they do.
