A Tree full of Waxwings

Driving home the other day, while at a stop sign, a bird caught my eye as it darted into a tree full of berries. There is not many times when I don't have my camera with me so I parked the truck, grabbed my camera and headed towards the tree. On closer inspection I realized the whole tree was filled with Waxwings... Bohemian Waxwings to be exact. I poked around for a bit taking pictures. The birds didn't seem to mind me as they gorged themselves on berries. 
Taking a break before selecting another delicious serviceberry.
Looking for the perfect one.
Found it!
A wack of Waxwings.
 This one had the right idea. Why work for my berries up in the tree when I can just sit under it and fatten up on all the ones that have been dropped.

I love it when birds puff themselves up to stay warm. They look so funny. I dig that bottom picture. The bird looks like Jabba the Hutt.

I wish I could puff up when it was -40! Glad you like the pics Randall...Don't be a stranger.

Yeah man. Nature's a pretty cool thing. You're lucky you get to spend time North woods regularly.
