Enjoy.

Wonderful shot, Ted. You got him in perfect light. His red throat reflects beautifully.

Really nice Mike, doing what they do to eat.

And this guy seems to be eating pretty well. Thank you very much, Bill.

Courting Cedar Waxwings.

A flock of 20 or so Cedar Waxwings were feeding on apple blossom petals when these two decided to pair up. The blackflies almost drove me inside but I persevered. Only a few were displaying the red wax adornments that give the bird its name including this pair.
