We never see Bohemians here... and are still (constantly) hoping for the chance to capture our somewhat rare Cedar Waxwings this closeup.

congrats on a very nice shot Brian,

Very nice picture. Love the light. They pass thru here for about 3 days in the spring. Stop for Flowering crab and Russian olive berry's.

Again thanks for your kind comments, not regular in my neck of the woods. They only irrupt from continental Europe every few years when food supplies become scarce.
I would love to see one of your Cedar Waxwings.
