Today I'm joining World bird Wednesday
found this little cedar wax wing on my walk the other day..
it was not being real cooperative with the photo shoot...

everytime I thought I got a good shot..
he would move slightly...

he was eating well....really enjoying those berries...


I have really enjoyed the sunny weather we are having...
but it was really cold this morning...in the low 30's...
for Texas...that is cold...remember not long ago...
we were over a 100....big difference...
we are having our first sale this weekend of my FIL's things...
it is a time consuming thing...going through...
deciding what everyone wants to keep...
what is trash...and what should be sold...
hopefully the weather will cooperate...

Cedar wax wings are pretty birds, and you did a good job photographing him when he wouldn't stand still for you!
The fire in your header warmed me up. Happy New Year to you and your family, Deb.

They are pretty good captures of the waxwing! At least he stayed still enough that you could get some clear shots!

sweet little bird, we were at 34 this morning and that is cold for FL.. like you we went from 100 to this. ours should be gone by Friday and our medium winter weather here. i know it is hard going through his things and making those decisions. and it takes a long time to get everything done.

That last shot of the waxwing is really beautiful.

We have just survives a few days of 100+F, really enervating and no fun at all.

Hope you get through the sale alright

I remember when you Texans were putting up with that long string of 100 degree days. Nice to get a break I would think! Great job on the waxwing, they are a tough catch.
