The last couple of days the tree outside my living room window has been a very active location. The first visitor I saw was a mourning dove but I wasn't quick enough to get a picture of it. Later I saw this whole herd of Cedar Waxwings. Yes I know the correct wording is flock of birds, but the way these birds were swooping up and down through the branches and around the buildings they looked like they were stampeding, thus the 'herd of birds'.
Sometimes it's hard to see the red wax tips on their wings so I enlarged this one so you could see them.
Ollie really wanted to get up in the tree with them.
Then this handsome fellow showed up. Maybe Phil the Groundhog was right. Maybe we are going to have an early spring.
As cold as it was yesterday, it was really nice today. I'm not sure if this is the same guy that showed up yesterday, but when I walked up to the window to take his picture, he cocked his head and looked at me as if to say, "Hey, you still here? Get outside!"
Then this little guy showed up, but not for long. He leaped onto the branch of another tree and scampered off.
I'm ready for spring...and warm weather...and wildflowers!
