Waxies Without Kinked Necks

Recommended Posts

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

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
