    Default Waxwings

    Peoples,

    At this time (Friday morning 10 a.m.), Credit Union drive, at the corner of C and Tudor, is playing host to a HUGE flock of Waxwings. They are feeding on the Mountain Ash shrubs ringing the USA Federal Credit Union Building. I have been waiting on these birds to make their annual appearance, and I'm at work............

    Happy "shooting",

    Tracey

    Default Waxwings, and more Waxwings

    Hey Photo Takers,

    At daylight this morning the area around the USA Federal Credit Union was covered in many thousands of Waxwings....many thousands. Non-photographers were stopping their cars in the middle of the street just to gawk at such an incredible site. Shortly after daylight the flock broke up into a number of groups that spread out over mid-town looking for more food (they stripped all the Mt Ash trees around the bank of their berries in two days). Luckily the industrial park across Tudor (north) has a large number of Mt Ash trees also, and that is where Tom and I photographed today. There is one, maybe two days, berries there. If you want Waxwing photos try the parking lot at Lone Star tomorrow.

    Good luck,

    Tracey

    Default A few waxwings

    Here are a few waxwing pictures from a couple of weeks ago. Up here in Fairbanks I didnt see that big of flocks, but there were several with 50ish birds. It was a dark overcast day, but I took a few pictures anyway.

    Awesome pictures montana boy!! Waxwings sure are beautiful birds... I've got some ash trees right outside my work window and always take a break to watch the waxwings when a flock shows up. One of these days I'll remember to keep a camera handy.
    Pursue happiness with diligence.
