When I was leaving, I heard an even greater chirping uproar and discovered that the flock had grown exponentially and there were HUNDREDS of waxwings in those trees. I watched, just mesmerized, wishing I had my camera. Then I thought, what the heck, I'll go home and get it and maybe they'll still be here when I return. Home to change clothes and grab the camera and run back. I lively only a couple of miles from the rec center, so it doesn't take long.
There was no way to begin to capture all the birds in the trees and flying around.
I've never seen a flock like this and will be lucky to ever see it again. Waxwings winter here in the south in small flocks but migrate northward for nesting and disperse throughout the countryside.
Hubby and I noted our seventeenth wedding anniversary this week. No great celebration but amazement as to where the time has gone. It's also time to figure out where our summer travels will take us. Such a dilemma!
Y'all take care.
