I’ve mentioned Jim’s crazy “Bird Buffet” on our back deck many times in my blog…we currently have at least eight bird feeders in operation (in the summer, we also have three hummingbird feeders). The kids are on March Break this week. Yesterday, Anna called me at the bookstore and said excitedly, “I think we’ve got waxwings!”
In my somewhat distracted state, my mind made a weird jump back to the times the kids had come home with lice…I thought, “Oh, no…how do we get rid of waxwings?!” It took me a couple of minutes to realize Anna was talking about birds, not something contagious! After I recovered my senses, Anna and I discussed what kind of waxwings we
were afflicted with had hanging around. She sent me a photo via e-mail, and we decided they were Bohemian Waxwings.
Jim and Anna both have new Nikon cameras (Jim has a D-90, and Anna a D-3100), and have been using the birds as subjects…here are some of their best shots:
I hope you’ve enjoyed this trip around our yard…watch out for waxwings!
