I saw a Cedar Waxwing!

Apr 15

Yesterday morning I was looking towards the group of pine trees near the stream by our house. I was watching the sun shining through the branches.

All of a sudden I saw a flitter, and some dark object hop and plunge back into the pines. I grabbed my binoculars, and aimed them towards the branches where I saw the object last. I waited. I waited some more still longer until I saw his head peer out of the branches. When he rested on a branch closer to me I realized it was a CEDAR WAXWING! Another bird I can add to my GREAT YEAR LIST.
