Super birds, unless you're a fruit grower..
Care MacADNski: They only eat the petals on my trees and have never altered production. They clean up old apples in spring too. They are totally welcome here.
They are handsome birds Mary
Care MacADNski: They really are. They are colour blended so nicel;y.

Their colour reminds me of conference pears.
Care MacADNski: I am not familiar with that pear but do admire the smooth blend of colour in the waxwings.
They are handsome birds
Care MacADNski: Smooth looking in both texture and colour, quite handsome.
Aren't they lovely little birds.
Care MacADNski: I love them in their large flocks; not that scared and quietly chatting while they eat petals.

Waxwings are such smart little birds. They are a rarity here - I still remember the excitement when I saw my first ones - I thought they were leaves on a bare tree
Care MacADNski: They have excellent hidability with their brown blends so much like the trees.I love their yearly appearances.

What a lovely sight they must be.
Care MacADNski: They have a quiet whistle and aren't that afraid so I can get fairly close.
Lovely birds, aren't they?
Care MacADNski: They are sweet and predictable, a yearly treat.

Pretty little birds but they give the impression fo having "attitude".
Care MacADNski: I don't find that so. They are quiet and agreeable if you are in tune with them.
