October 24 – Bohemian Waxwings Are Back

Yesterday afternoon I went out to street in front of our house to see if we had any mail, and I heard the wonderful high-pitched trills of Bohemian Waxwings. I looked back over our house toward the sound and saw the flock perched high in a birch tree in the back yard. I raced inside, grabbed the camera and was able to get a few pictures before they flew off. They returned later for another short visit. They are one of my favorite Alaskan bird species but I never see them in Anchorage except in winter and early spring as they wander around the city looking for berries.
