You posted this one, didn't you? I swear I remember it! It's awesome!
Hi Vicki. I'm in Alaska and here the waxwings feast in mountain ash berries and chokecherries! Gorgeous photos!
What gorgeous autumn scene, the colors, the birds, the light - beautifully captured, a joy to behold!Thank you,Merisi
What are the chances of catching that berry mid swallow?! :) Well done you.
ha they are enjoying themselves i think....that first picture is really cool....
What a great bunch of pictures!My favorite's the "plucking from underneath while wing-flapping". What beauties!
Lovely little birds. Wonderful pictures.
they're having a wonderful feast of those berries.
I've always just loved the word pyracantha...it's fun to say!These photographs are really marvelous, perfect announcements that autumn has arrived.xo
Don't you just love it when so many of them gather? Too bad they didn't pop on over to visit us while they were in the area.
Exquisite, heart-breakingly beautiful photos, Vicki! xxxj
Wonderful pictures, Vicki! I'm a bit jealous as I have this exact Pyracantha (with the orange berries), but have never once seen a Cedar Waxwing on it (though the other birds love it). Perhaps it's because the waxwings are much too busy eating our persimmons. :-)
Great shots- wish I could get a bird to sit around and pose for me just once or twice!
What gorgeous feasting, and how autumnal and rich the colours. How clever of you to catch the berry in the bird's beak!
This first image is quite a scene!
We too have a pyracantha with no Cedar Waxwings, Beth. These photos were taken last year at a friend's place near Brevard.
