Reflections of Robins and Waxwings

 

Early one morning, I spotted these robins and cedar waxwings enjoying quick sips from a puddle of rainwater.

I like these pictures. I don't think that I've ever seen a waxwing before. I saw a robin for the first time about a year ago but now I see them all the time. The waxwing reflections at the bottom are excellent.

Great pictures of the Robins and Cedar Waxwings, Diane.... The birds all need their water---so they will get it wherever they can!!!

You really captured a great reflective moment in these pictures. It almost looks like a lot more birds than there are. And this is the first I've seen a Waxwing. I love those black bands.

In New England, waxwings are big berry eaters(such as mulberry). I wonder what they eat around here---maybe desert mistletoe berries.

Stephanie said...

Diane, I thought the bird in the pond in your first pix is a reflection ha ha... LOL :-D Nonetheless, nice pix.

Have another adventurous weekend!

Tom, yes the waxwings are eating the desert mistletoe.

Maia said...

Thank you for your comment.I've just started a new macro flowers meme and I came back to invite you to participate with your beautiful desert flowers.

I simply love the Cedar waxwings! but we don't see them here until close to fall when the berries form on the Madrone. What a great reflection!

Joanna said...

Those cedar waxwings are such beautiful birds. The reflections in the last photo are lovely.
