Cedar Waxwings are beautiful birds that travel in large flocks. We had a few come into the crab apple tree & I hoped they were the only ones, a small flock. Of course, I was wrong, they were the scouting party apparently. Soon after a huge flock came by & pretty much took care of the berries/tiny apples on the flowering crab. It's kind of frustrating, on one hand I'm glad to see these birds & glad to feed them, on the other, there goes a big food source for the ruffed grouse & the pileated woodpecker. It is as it should be someone told me recently, he's right. Deep breath & some pics of the pileated coming up next.
Well, you're getting the pileated now. I'm glad he comes around.
Here's a waxwing. Note the branches in the background, pretty bare.
I know I've been leaning a lot to the masculine side in The Daily Doe feature, but I've been slacking about getting more doe pics. As usual, it's not a such a big deal, but, well, yeah I'm a slacker.
As usual, dear reader, click 'em to big 'em.
