Cedar waxwings

9 posts in this topic

At last light, with the sun a few degrees above the horizon while I was driving back home (and my fingers were like little icicles!), a flock of cedar waxwings landed in a mountain ash tree.

Brrrrrr! I'm still not warm! frown

Thanks, guys. I could barely work the controls, my hands were so cold. Never had to take pictures with the nubs of the stumps of my hands before. At some point I just stuck the sucker up there, said a prayer and let er rip. These are just the ones that jumped out at me among the 300 or so I shot. I'm still trying to get warm. frownfrown

Awesome shots. I like the 3rd shot best. Its tail feathers look almost a transparent blue and you can see its wing through them.

You know there is a Townsend Solitaire wintering in Ely. I bet no one has ever posted a picture of one of them on the forum before...grin

The waxwings don't look cold at all. Warm enough to give you some great poses! Like em' all.

I've heard that from a couple of people who have seen one, and the sightings were about 8 miles apart. Don't know how far they range, but maybe there's more than one!
