A Museum of Cedar Waxwings

What should have been a quick stop at the Post Office on this drizzly morning turned into a bit of a distraction. Perched in a tree outside the door was this flock (or museum) of beautiful Cedar Waxwings feasting away on berries, looking like little bandits with their black masks. I need to figure out what kind of tree this is – because I want one! They ignored me and my impromptu photo shoot. The sighting made my day. Happy Tuesday!

    Maybe google the breed and you can find out what kind of berries they like to eat this time of year or check with your state college’s extension service. . Or take one of these pictures to your local nursery or park ranger station or someplace.
