Cedar Waxwings

Just saw a bunch of cedar waxwings travel through my yard. It's been a long time (years) since I've seen them here. Perhaps they remembered my pyracantha, which hasn't been doing so well lately - possibly the reason they did not linger long.

This time of year, our American Hollies and Inkberries are being eaten by a number of birds. Mostly Robins but also Mockingbirds, Hermit Thrush and sometimes Cedar Waxwings.
I took this picture just a few days ago. This bird is sampling the lichen that grows on a Honey Locust. The Waxwings that visit our yard stay pretty high in the trees and I usually know they are around by their high pitched notes, tough for some older people to hear.
