Waxwings and Larks

Just a couple of hundred feet from my home, I was stopped this morning by frenetic activity in some bushes - a mixed flock of 75+ waxwings, with Cedar Waxwings predominating, but with plenty of Bohemians Waxwings. With the waxwing flock were 10 Eastern Bluebirds.

A few days ago I finally put to rest my worry that I would be the only birder in the county who would not see Snow Buntings and Horned Larks. Most were too far away for any photographs, but a few larks were nearer at hand and permitted a few so-so photo ops.

Good birding!

Wow amazing!!! What a beautiful sight, so many waxwings... Lucky you :-) I'd love to see the cedar, it looks pretty beautiful too. Does it have the same song as the bohemian?

That is a truly beautiful waxwing photo! I love how they are each doing their own thing...
