Now that I've finished the Black-headed Grosbeak, it's time to start stitching the Mourning Doves. I am impatiently awaiting Beth Twist's release of her next three charted birds.
I got pretty excited on Saturday...
..because I saw and heard a group of Cedar Waxwings.
They flocked atop a couple of Douglas fir trees, but did not come in close.
Until Monday! When two handsome gentleman came to the berm in the backyard.
That made my birding morning for sure.
There's something about a Cedar Waxwing that is tough to top.
Looking closely, you can see the bird on the left has something in his beak. My theory is that they are eating ripe Osoberries as well as other early fruit.
