Stories & pictures about birds & nature, mostly in my backyard.....with occasional bits of pets, knitting, weather, food & family thrown in for variety.

This past Tuesday was a beautiful and sunny mid-January day -- especially when you think of how awful January in Minnesota could be (and has been in the past). While I had Holly out in the backyard for her potty break, I heard the unmistakable call of Cedar Waxwings. Looking around I saw this small flock perched in the top of one of my crabapple trees. I was thankful to see that they stuck around long enough for me to grab my camera and even continued posing while I walked around the yard to take advantage of the last afternoon sunshine and capture a photo of them in the best light. I love Cedar Waxwings and what a treat to see them in the middle of winter!
