Can't believe my good fortune. The cold temps and wind today kept all
the birds to a minimum. While telling a friend on the phone that I did
not expect to see any Waxwings in this weather I looked out the front
window and saw a few in the old dogwood. This afternoon they showed up
in full force at the birdbaths in the back, again drinking not bathing.
Same as yesterday, there were a few that had an orange tipped tail.
When hanging out laundry they were in the trees above me. They also
stayed put when I opened the window to get some more photos. The
birdbaths were about 15 feet from where I was sitting. I've missed
not getting any Fox Sparrows and Pine Siskins thus far but these Cedar
Waxwings more than made up for it. Just wish I could have shared this
