Favorites.....

I picked three of my favorite bird photos today.   
Cedar Waxwing

 White-breasted Nuthatch

Not sure what kind bird of prey this handsome fellow is.  I took them a while ago and am revisiting as they are part of my favorites collection.

I love those waxwings (don't think I've ever seen one in person) because they are so round and smooth looking, with lovely and delicate coloring.

Lovely. You are getting to be quite the little bird photographer.

If you do a Google image search for "hawk Eastern US" I bet you will see your friend and learn his name. Three very sweet shots indeed, D.



Have a GREAT Weekend!

I've never seen a cedar waxwing in the flesh, I mean feather before, but it sure is a beautiful bird. The coloring is so incredible! I'm always so amazed at the photos you're able to get of birds. Mine always fly away before I can even get my camera up.

Very nice, I haven't had a good waxwing shot like that for years.I had some nesting near my home one year and enjoyed the fledglings.When you have lots of birds you often attract the Coopers Hawk,so I agree with Country Gal.

They are great photos of the birds. You have even got a "catchlight" in the bird of prey's eye. They are all lovely birds.

All your photographs today are fabulous, Denise. It's ages since I saw an English nuthatch. In my last house we had a wisteria climber right by the bedroom window and I used to watch the nuthatch when he visited in the morning.

I love these bird photos, especially the first which is rather different to any birds I have seen in Australia.
