This stitch has two birds - is that a flock?
A group of over eight Cedar Waxwings certainly constitutes a flock.
After seeing them in downtown Eugene, it's nice they hang out in the country too.
I generally hear their very high-pitching buzzing, then look around to attempt to locate the birds.
These two have rather messy looking crests atop their heads.
I'm not sure what they are eating at present. They like fruits and berries.
Sometimes just a single bird can provide a bit of excitement.
In this case it was my first sighting of a Flycatcher this year.
It was working in the leaves of a Hazelnut, its tail wagging up and down, then it flew a bit and popped out for a better look.
As it never spoke, it was a bit of a challenge to ID, but after asking another birder, we decided that it was a Hammond's Flycatcher.
