Photo Friday: Cedar Waxwing

Birds love my yard. Among others, we regularly see cardinals, chickadees, robins, grackles, sparrows, blue jays, starlings, wrens, warblers, hummingbirds, two kinds of hawks, and three kinds of woodpeckers. But until last week, I had never seen cedar waxwings. Last Wednesday, I suddenly noticed a pair of them just outside the kitchen window. They seem to like the little black berries on the tree there. They kept fluttering around, especially when I came close to the window, and were hard to photograph (though it would have been easier if my actual camera weren’t broken, relegating me to trying it with my very poor cellphone camera). But I got lucky, and one of my many attempts came out!
