Saw this waxwing right beside the path that I was walking on a few days ago and chose it for the detail on the wing though prefer not to have the branch over the bird. It is this yellow that gives them their name. The bohemians are gathering now as they do in the spring (see the buds are on the trees) and will go to the boreal forests to be replaced by the Cedar Waxwings as the weather warms.The bohemians have grey breasts, rust under the tail and the white and yellow on the wings(from eating lots of berries) whereas the Cedar Waxwings have yellowish breasts and white under the tail and are slightly smaller. Walking through the woods with hundreds above you is an eery feeling because of their high-pitched wavering whistle.sound.
Well , I need to get back to finishing my income tax, will be back to normal tomorrow. ha! So will the weather! After a warm 10 celsius today, it is supposed to rain and snow tomorrow night up to 10-15 cm of snow. The moisture is a good thing. 🙂
