Finally, I managed to get out and get some good shots of the cedar waxwings visiting at the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Delta last week.
Jumpy little birds - and VERY pretty:
2. They seem to jump off the branches and almost hover while trying to find a new spot to land
3. Showing off their lovely colours - including the tail that looks like it has been dipped in yellow paint
4. No matter how good looking a species may be - sometimes there's just a WTF moment. This poor guy was having a bad hair day (it wasn't THAT windy)
I hope you enjoyed your virtual visit with our waxwings.
p.s. 1Putts - it was great meeting you out there!
