These guys are food loyal only and in a sense are nomadic bandits plundering berries where they can so their mask suits them.

I just decided to give you a taste of the incredible colour in these guys. They are both here during the winter, but the bohemians are here all year, while the RedPolls are winter migrants. Against a snowy background you can see how bright these fellows are, so gray skies and white snow are really not so bad, and are actually a grand background.
Of course, they also appear brighter against basic black.

The Lone Waxwing and Redpoll quite a duo--Love that analogy--Wonderful shots of these so exotic looking birds!! AND your crow is simply beautiful.ReplyDelete

Their coloring along with the red berries makes for striking images!ReplyDelete
I love waxwings. A couple of months ago there were what appeared to be hundreds of them in the trees where I walk Tucker---I was so taken aback and mesmerized, I completely forgot to take their pictures. Your photos are splendid!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous shot of the Waxwings. Very cool to see the Bohemians. And I love the Redpolls. Fantastic photos.ReplyDelete
I love Waxwings, what a beautiful bird, nice Gary!ReplyDelete
Lovelly images! great shots ;)ReplyDelete
I love Bohemian waxwings. they are an awesome bird and you captured them beautifully.ReplyDelete
the waxwing is a winter favourite to me. It is gone now. :( Great shots. It is a bird that needs sunshine to show off the colors.ReplyDelete
Oh,Only if I could apparate and disapprate like Harry Potter....! :)ReplyDelete
Those bohemians are something else with their smooth plumage like a bodysuit and lovely pastel tonings.ReplyDelete
Those waxwings are gorgeous, and your pictures are pure art.ReplyDelete
The head of the top birds looks hand painted. Fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thanks for comment. A great series.ReplyDelete
OMG!!! The Waxwing captures are...major splendid!!!ReplyDelete
I don't think anyone can argue with the beauty of a waxwing.ReplyDelete
Fascinating and beautiful captures!ReplyDelete
To me the Waxwings are one of the most beautiful birds. They are here in the fall to just eat berries and then off they go in big gangs. Super shot of all the birds. MBReplyDelete
