I waited quietly for the Waxwings to return.

I am smitten.

They are 7 inches or 18 cm long. They are flocking birds.

Dear Q~

Oh my goodness, I had no idea these birds were so colorful and beautiful. They are such sweet little tweets.
These photographs are wonderful.

Dear Sprite,
I was closer today when the Waxwings came. I had gone out to the deck to read and wait. Here they came in so I was able to take outside photos. I put apples out for them so if they come back tomorrow they will have a nice treat.
I was very, very pleased with these photos.

Smitten, indeed! Who wouldn't be by these beauties! I haven't seen them in our back yard, but they made an appearance each year in the house my parents used to own.


Mary - thanks so much for your visit to my blog. Your comment was very welcome!

Hi Mary,
I am very, very excited to have the Waxwings about. They are new to my gardens and I hope they become regular visitors. How fun for your parents to have them come every year..
You are welcome for comment. It is fun to have feedback.
I will visit you again soon.

Dear Deb,
Oh my stars, I am so very pleased.
There are lots of different birds in Missouri, some I have never seen, like the Waxwings. In February I bought a stained glass piece of a Cedar Waxwing and added it to the list of birds to study.
I have done some reading about them and now I get to watch them.
Dreams can come true!
