Waxwings (Bombycilla garrulus)

It was a morbid day, two hours of sunshine later, bad again. These are from another year, as it was the Waxwings had been here for two whole days, and now they have gone. I am upset............
 Deeply upset......................
 Broken hearted...............................
 Deeply deeply deeply upset...............

Devastated


 O my, I'm troubled.......................
 It has taken £30 just now chasing the Waxwings ...........................
 Woh, woh, woh, woh is me.

Lol

  6. Hello Bob, Beautiful pictures of those Waxwings. Those birds are now in Holland! But in de west of Holland. I live in the North, so it is too far for me for making photos of them.

    Best regards,
    Willy

  12. They look like members of a ballet--a very important ballet that is booked to perform tonight in Italy! That is why you didn't see them, but these photos from another time are gorgeous, and now I know what a beautiful dancer the Waxwing is!

  21. Oh wow, Bob.These pictures are gorgeous. Great that you had last year an encounter with these migratory birds. They have been spotted in the Netherlands too, but I was not the lucky one to see them. Too bad. Maybe next year. Have a nice evening. Greetings, Joke

  38. Looks like you finally caught up with him in the last photo. We do not have them here where I live. I like them. We do have the Tufted Titmouse but is lacks the colors.

  42. I'm quite a bit jealous of these pictures of the Waxwing Bob. Here in the Netherlands there was everywhere an invasion but I've only seen one! Splendor series here!
