A visit from the Cedar Waxwings. . . . . . . . . . . . .






Recently, early morning, a flock of beautiful Cedar waxwings took a 
short break in our backyard trees. I first noticed about a dozen squabbling
 over whom would get a drink from the birdbath. 
I ran for the camera but by the time I returned to the window they
 were up on the branches with about 20 more birds, all preening before moving
 on to wherever they were headed, probably back up north. Such lovely birds.

I'm still visiting in Branson, Missouri.
Yes, enjoying the music and being with friends.
Weather has turned cold after the stormy night but will
 warm up again tomorrow.

  1. They are such lovely birds. What a beautiful sight to see them perched in your tree, chatting (or squabbling) among themselves.

  4. The wawings are gorgeous birds - they look very similar to ours. For the past few years waxwings have been arriving here more and more, must be global warming I suspect.

  5. What pretty little birds and I can almost hear their commotion from here.
    We have occasional visits from a group of galahs and they make a great noise - same thing discussing who feeds from the feeder first I imagine!

  14. The cedar waxwings have been in abundance here. They look beautiful in your photos, but they certainly leave a mess when they visit. Enjoy your trip.

  16. The cedar waxwing is on the list of birds which frequent my neck of the woods, but as yet I have been unable to add them to my sightings list. Yesterday, I saw a pair of beautiful Brown Thrashers, the Georgia state bird. The birds are not visiting my feeder quite as often now, but I can hear them twittering up in the trees, so I know they are busy doing Spring things. The trees are leafing out, so I will not be able to see them as well as I do in the wintertime, but Miz Bluebird has once again been checking out my bluebird house on the patio. Happy Easter to you .... hope you've had a good time in Branson!
