I was looked through my portable hard drive today and came across this photo. It is from 2006 which I took in the spring. These are Bohemium Waxwings and are a most beautiful bird. They fly in packs – almost like a swarm of flies but of course their pack is much larger. They have the most appealing way of coming to a tree and landing almost in unison in all the branches. They love the berries of the mountain ash and will clean a tree off in a few moments heading off to find another as quickly as they arrived.
This is not one of my best photos but they don’t sit still long so I was quite happy to do this well.
