I got a text message on Wednesday from a friend saying he had Waxwings in a tree behind his house, luckily I had the day off work so you can imagine I was straight there.
The last time I saw Waxwings was back in January 2009 and was miles away and took hours to find them, I have never seen Waxwings near where I live and haven't heard reports of sightings of them in years.
The only downer on this amazing opportunity was the only tree with a few berries left was in a shaded corner, but you can't have everything.
Here are the shots I got.
And finally a close up portrait.
All photos taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm
Hope you liked the shots.
Going good so far, hope I can keep this up.
