Wild Bird Wednesday

I get to add another sighting of these beautiful Cedar Waxwing to my short list of sighting. The 4th time and by far the best photo op and I saw a pair!!!!


These birds seem to be fairly shy much of the time but this pair was very cooperative.
They stayed on this branch for some time while I care fully moved around it maybe 15 feet away.
They flew off and came back a couple of times as well.



They take my breath away!


Stunning!

  1. They're beautiful! I see them sometimes when they come searching for berries, but they never stay long.

  3. I saw my very first cedar wax wings a few days ago at work, of course no camera. Great captures!

  6. Beautiful! And lucky you...all I get to see in my garden is a daylily named after the bird--and there's just no comparison.

  11. Great series! These guys always look so neatly groomed. We only get to see them during migration and even then all too briefly.

  13. Your pictures are just stunning! I am just getting into birding and photography and am wondering what type of camera/lens combo you use and/or what you would recommend for a beginning birder. I currently have a 5+ years old Canon Power Shot digital point and shoot and while it's okay and has always taken good jewelry shots for me, I think I've about reached the limit of what it can do when it comes to wildlife - certainly can't zoom in on birds as well as I would like and still keep nice, crisp detail.
