WAXWOWS

I didn’t see a lot of different birds at our place today–too much rain. But late this afternoon a block from our house my wife and I saw over a hundred waxwings. They in and out of the bare top of a Doug fir, from there they would fly far off or just to nearby, denser, healthier conifers. I thought they might be gathering for the evening roost. Hither and thither they fluttered.

This evening there was light drizzle at our house. When the dog and went outside we could hear a flock of Cackling Geese passing overhead, somewhere up in the foggy darkness.
