Busy Day at the Birdbath

Cedar waxwings are among the world's most beautiful birds with their bands of yellow across the end of their tails, just a touch of bright red and their little black masks. I rarely see one around here, so I'm always excited at a sighting. They usually travel in groups so where there's one, there are often more. I spotted three on this birdbath by my front door and ran to get the camera. By the time I got back, they were gone but I was patient and was rewarded. And, in the meantime, I spotted a yellow-rumped warbler and a nuthatch. Did you know that birding is one of the fastest growing sports in America?
