Cedar Waxwings

16 11 2009

Finally, I managed to get out and get some good shots of the cedar waxwings visiting at the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Delta last week.

Jumpy little birds – and VERY pretty:

2. They seem to jump off the branches and almost hover while trying to find a new spot to land

3. Showing off their lovely colours – including the tail that looks like it has been dipped in yellow paint :)

4. No matter how good looking a species may be – sometimes there’s just a WTF moment. This poor guy was having a bad hair day (it wasn’t THAT windy)

I hope you enjoyed your virtual visit with our waxwings.
