It’s been cold up here and I’ve been hibernating in the house. The day before yesterday we finally got to double digit temperatures (Fahrenheit and above zero!). Sitting on the sofa, camera by my side I was watching the lake when this big guy stopped by to look for lunch.
I got to see him run up and down the tree, then fly past my window. He was really cool in flight, maybe someday I’ll catch that too.
And yesterday on a walk down the street I got only two driveways away when I heard a soft chirping. I looked up and saw this:
A whole flock of something. Can you guess? Does this help?
Yes you are correct! A huge flock of cedar wax wings! Those in the tree were resting after a big lunch. Lunch was a buffet on a tree full of red berries.
I cropped the heck out of that shot, and I liked the artsy form it took on when I tried to get the bird’s colors to show.
I think I saw a bald eagle when I was out too, but it was way too far away for me to be sure. I’ll be here another day, and I’ve seen them fly down the shore before, so you never know.
