The other morning, Mom and I came outside to find a gloomy, blah day. But as we looked around, we saw these tiny, beautiful splashes of yellow in the trees! Look:
|Four and twenty Waxwings...|
Aren't they lovely? The ornamental fruit trees were filled with Cedar Waxwings, stopping by to have a snack!
Don't they look sweet?!? They were across the street in our neighbors' tree - then they came into our next-door neighbors' tree. I thought we should go have a closer look!
Mom said we needed to approach slowly and quietly. I did my best to accommodate:
|Me, tip-toeing over to see the birdies!|
Here are some of the shots we got:
I love how yellow the tip of his tail is! And check out this next guy:
He has a mask like us Siberians do!
This guy on the right's snarfing down one of those fruits:
Dave gets told, "NononoDAVIDno!!!" when he tries to do that. (Even though our tree is gone - click here for the story - our neighbors have plenty of fruit-dropping trees.)
I was happy to walk around under the trees while Mom shot her pix ... and then ...
|"Look out below!!!"|
...then I thought it would behoove us to move along.
|"Come on, Mom, let's move over a bit!"|
It's been a while since we've shared one of our sunsets with you - so here's a look at our Friday evening skyline:
|Sunset over the Flint Hills|
Gorgeous, isn't it? I hope you feel nice and serene now!
