Cedar Waxwings in the Backyard


Yesterday, I went out in the backyard to get some wood for the wood stove and saw quite a few birds in a large maple tree on the edge of my property.  I realized they were feeding on some buds on the tree.  We had a couple of days of really warm weather here (one day in the 60’s) and I think it tricked this tree into thinking spring had arrived.

So, I ran inside and grabbed my 7D and 400 mm lens and took a few shots.  I really couldn’t tell what kind of birds these were until I got back inside and processed them with Lightroom.  There were some robins (I’m surprised they are still here), starlings (yuck), and a bird I’ve been trying to photo for a while – Cedar Waxwings!  I was really amped about these shots, mainly because I think these are beautiful birds, but I haven’t been able to get any decent shots of them.

Here are a few from yesterday.
