Waxies Without Kinked Necks

11 posts in this topic

This guy has been in the yard, non-stop, for a day-and-a-half, but all by himself. He's very cooperative, and doesn't scare off easily (well except when the sharp-shinned vocalizes overhead.) Very little crop was needed. The only kinked neck I got was the one in my neck from post processing.

I've been waiting for this post. Dang, I am still envious. You had such great lighting, when you took these. Not to mention the clean bg.

Wow, those are really nice! I wish I had some of those around here more often. What kind of tree is that, maybe that's what I need?

I love cedar wax wings. These are very nice - we had one in our yard for about 2 minutes last week.

Very nice! Waxwings sure are neat little birds and those are sure some wonderful representations. That looks like an American cranberry. Birdsong?

What I planted was Highbush Cranberry. I'm not sure if that is the same as American Cranberry? They were very fast growing--in ten years they are taller than the garage even though I have lopped several feet off several times. As I recall, they began berrying very early on. At least I can't remember a year without at least a few. The birds do not eat the berries until about this time every year. Thanks for all of your comments! I remembered what you all told me about the camera wanting to meter off the bright sky.

Apparently looking at some fact sheets, highbush cranberry and American cranberry bushes are the same thing. They're not true cranberries but the main thing is the birds, and especially waxwings really like them. grin
