Today we had a heat wave come through, so we got outside to do a bit of yardwork. Turns out that the wildlife was really enjoying the weather too. I saw numerous birds in the yard that I don't often see around.
And the ones that I was most excited about - the Cedar Waxwings. I've always seen these beauties in the bird books, but never saw one for myself until today. I think their markings are so exquisite. There weren't just a few of them either - there was an entire group of them, also known as an "ear-full" or "museum."
