Day 360 - Boxing Day Birds
Was doing some cleaning and organizing inside when I looked out the window and saw our flowering crab apple tree filled with birds. I quickly grabbed my camera, put on my boots and headed outside. I tried to be quiet but I was still too noisy. Just as I got close enough to the tree to 'shoot', the birds flew away. I was waiting quietly hoping they would return and my patience was rewarded. I managed to get some shots of the Bohemian Waxwings and some cute little Chickadees. As I was shooting the flock suddenly flew away. However, this time I was not the cause. I realized that the woodpecker now on the telephone pole was the culprit. He moved quickly so I didn't get a great shot but wanted to include him just the same. The experience was definitely more fun than going to the stores today and a lot less crowded.
