Cedar Waxwings

While spending a beautiful afternoon at Ouabache State Park on Thursday, we saw several Cedar Waxwings flitting around. With all the leaves on the trees now, it's very hard to get photographs of them. But, we soon realized that a pair of them had a nest in a tree, almost directly above us. (Indirectly enough, however, that we were safe from falling...ahem...you get the picture.)

Hope you enjoy these little beauties as much as we did.

  1. I love to watch them, they are so beautiful. I see groups later in the summer and they serenade me.

  4. They are my favorite winter migrant! Didn't see as many this year. Always a treat when I do and have a camera ready. Beautiful pics!

  5. I don't know if I should be more enchanted by the birds or by the lush greens.

    Love the photos!
