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

    • LOL,  Don't p i s s Carol off! 
    • I have the Helix 7 Ice and there is no way you could pry that from my hands for a noisy spinning round dial thing. ( I was going to type flasher but I know what types of snarky GIF's would have been posted in reply to that. 
    • I’m glad Lavine is gone! With him on the team, wolves would’ve been in last place last year. He is NOT a winner! Chicago sucked last year! They suck this year! And they’re going to suck next year! I think Jimmy Butler would have stayed if we would have shipped off Wiggins. If anything, this trade should help reduce minutes for KAT and Gibson in a positive way.
    • Well, I’m only about 5 minutes into the next show, and I already know the older Judith will be more annoying than Carl was. Yep, show is back in the pits!
    • I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd!  Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn!  Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!!  hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! 😂  Go Wolves!!
    • My son was able to gain access by connecting it to his desktop. It required 12v power to drive it. Thanks.
    • UFFDA dats close!!!!!!!!!! we are close to the spring lake store iffin you go that way much!!!!!!
    • Not much to complain about so far, must be why its so quiet in here. From the games I am seeing we don't even look all that great yet but are finding ways to win and Dubs/parise/granlund have been amazing. Will need some depth to kick in to be any kind of real contender, and of course we need to find a way to actually score goals if we make the playoffs, it seems that is always the issue. 
    • Right there by Riley's.  Hopefully they stay locked up and the wind and temps behave.
    • well, it is a what have you done lately society, soooooooooo........... nope........my neck is fine!!!!!!!!!!! i may need to get it massaged by some of those new female hunter trainee's however!!!!!!!!😉
