We have a beautiful Mountain Ash tree very close to the house and this year it is abundant with red berries that the birds have found. Usually they clean them off in a day, but this year it is taking a week of birds such as Robins, Sparrows and these beautiful Cedar Waxwings and still more to go.

    Great shot sis…these birds came one morning last week and I ran for my camera and they flew away and never came back. There were over a hundred of them, they usually clean out our crabapple tree each year but this year something spooked them (must have been me). Hope they come back.

  • HI sis!
    Wow, nice to see you. Well you don’t clunk your heels when you run, go barefoot next time. hehehe
    I’m so sorry they ran off on you sis. I had them here for about a week. The berries were thick and held them for awhile.
    Thanks for your so welcome visit.
    Love and hugs
