Cedar Waxwings

Lately I've been hearing the high pitched "bzeee- bzeeee" of the Cedar Waxwings outside our side door. You can listen to their song at They come in groups to feed on the red berries on the bushes and to perch in the locust tree. They're a little skittish when I come out with the camera, but I managed to capture a few today, though the evening light was not great. I enjoy their striking accent colors, especially the yellow-tipped tails and red-tipped wings.

I wish they would stop by here sometime.
