Bohemian Waxwing

This morning, with yet another storm pending, a single Bohemian Waxwing picked at one of the remaining apples on the tree outside our kitchen window. My thanks to my neighbor Dave who said "waxwing," and then stood around while I ignored him and tried to take some photos.

Evening Grosbeaks continue to be regular at the feeders, though the flock(s) are more variable in numbers than earlier in the month. The flock represented by the birds in the photo was in the 50+ range. (Note: The actual count reached 34 when something spooked them and they flew, including birds which had not been visible during the count, hence the estimate.)

Good birding!
