Richard Schear photos
Unfortunately, these pictures will not enlarge well, as they were taken from Dick's home office through a dirty window, and a dirty window-screen. However, I couldn't resist posting these because of the expressions on this Cedar Waxwing's face: first when he spots a shriveled, frozen crabapple, and then when he tries to pick it, only to find it immediately disappears!
Earlier the same day, I saw other birds in our ornamental crabapple tree, knocking the fruit to the ground, then going down to dig it out of the snow. There is still plenty of fruit on the upper branches, but the lower branches have been picked clean by the small herd of mule deer who visit our yard.
