Chasing the Blues Away

I’m so thrilled! I have waited for years to see these birds again.
Now, there’s a pair of these beautiful, sleek Cedar Waxwings! They must have a nest nearby, as they keep chasing the Blue Jays away.

    congratulations! they’re just beautiful. if i am lucky, i get to see a group in winter passing thru in migration.

  2. I love these birds too. Bohemian that is! They arrive in a massive flock eat all the berries and off they go!

  3. I see the Bohmenian Waxwing here as they arrive in a flock eat all the berries and are gone in a swoosh!

  4. Lucky girl! They are sleek aren’t they? That’s a great word to describe them. They come in the spring here so I am eagerly awaiting next year. 🙂

  24. Love them…they remind me of wax beans!..:)JP

  25. Marie says:

    Beautiful! They have always been one of my favorites!

  26. Oh those are my most favorite birds in the whole world. Really they were the first ones to get me interested in birding when a pair landed in our holly tree (when we still had our home and yard in Oregon)…they were feeding each other berries — and I was absolutely mesmerized! We’ve only seen them a very few times in our travels since then. Not even in our yard the next year. Someone told me they take different migration routes every year. So in case that’s true, b e sure to enjoy them while you can!! Thanks for the beautiful pictures and the memories!!
