    A flock of Cedar waxwings paid a short visit. Maybe they will return tomorrow. Here is one shot. The rest are in backyard birds thread.

    Really thrilling to me to see a few strangers. Not native to Florida

    Hey Gale,

    These are just unreal beautiful birds. I like the feel of this image with them all gathered up pondering their next move.

    Maybe tomorrow they will flash those pretty and colorful tails at you!

    Hey Galeeeee!!

    I got a chance to see and shoot a flock of these beauties a couple of weeks ago. Andy is right, and your pics certainly show how gorgeous they are.

    Great catches. :wink:

    Thank You Flew and Andy

    They are headed up north somewhere.
    Not a native Fl bird.
    I have seen only one, and that was in Jan when they flew south with the Robins.
    Who knows may tomorrow. I will sure be on the look out for them.
    They are staying to high. I am on the third floor and shot them

    They really are beautiful
     
  5. Gorgeous! I am thrilled in New England whenever I see a cardinal!

    Hi Louie
    Thank You
    there may have been closd to a hundred (maybe a bit less) can't really count them when they decide to take off.
    They fly very fast.
    I sure enjoyed the site though. Wish I could have gotten closer images.

    There are more images in backyard birds thread

    Bill,
    I would guess they are headed your way.
    I will have to look them up and see where they live in summer.
    They are so pretty.
    There are some more in the backyard birds thread.

    I was really lucky I got the after noon sun shining into the tree instead of back lit. Which usually happens.

    Thank You
     
  11. Nice grouping! Send them up yo KY--Never see them here!

  12. Love them Gale. I am looking forward to seeing them when they arrive here later this summer. They are such a beautiful bird. Happy shooting girl.

    Thank You Paul
    Quite a suprise for me.

    They are on the way.
    They sounded like baby birds. I was looking everywhere trying to find where that noise it was coming from.
    They all of a sudden I see this flock of birds fly right out of the trees I was looking at.
    Heck if I saw them.
    Went for the camera...lolol
    Awwww now I see you little devils...

    This is the only shot I got in January. They were mixed in with the Robins.
    Headed south...lol

    Hi Torben
    Not usually found here either...lol

    I was happy to see them.
    they are gone already.

    Thank You
     
  17. Way to go Gale I too hope they are coming north as I get to see them for a very short time and some times in certain parts of the woods where these berrys grow there can be over a hundred of them but you have to be there as the next day all the berrys are gone but if you catch them there :smile: :smile: :smile: Nice photo

    Very nice capture, Gale. I have read that some are in my area, but I have never seen one. But, I'll be on the lookout.
     
  20. I thought they had all gone through already, Nice capture and you can send a few up here.
