    Such a shame. To make matters worse I've never seen one in our area.

    I saw this beautiful bird dead in our lawn today. It didn't have a mark on it. At first glance I thought it was a baby Cardinal but never saw one with yellow tipped tail feathers. Researching it on line it seems to be a Ceder Waxwing. I have never seen one in my whole life. Such a pretty little thing. They say they have a nice whistle also. They also like fruit and berries and like to catch insects by rivers. It is to early for fruit around here. A few farm stands have strawberries but that is a few miles away. We have a pond nearby but no rivers. It made me sad.bird1 (800x600).jpgbird2 (800x600).jpgbird3 (800x600).jpg

    Oh the poor thing. I wish you could have spotted it alive, Ruth.

    Cedar Waxwings. One of my favorite birds. If you see them in an crab apple tree as a flock they pass the apples from one to another.

    At our golf course they would fly across a small lake in front of the tee and then fly back all the while catching insects.

    And they would come back every year.
