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.

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

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

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...

They have to be headed up to you all in the north.
Not native to florida at all

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

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.
