Their song consists of a rich variety of phrases, uttered with a vocal force that's amazing in such a small bird..
I also observed a mixed flock of about 20 Cedar and Bohemian Waxwings in a crab apple tree, but the snow that had fallen the previous night made it difficult to get close. So I only got one fairly decent photo.
Now for a change of subject:
I have been meaning to post an update on my brother whose bicycle accident last July resulted in massive head trauma affecting mostly the speech center on the left side. After months of rehab he is home now, but things are far from ordinary. The accident resulted in him losing his speech. He understands questions but is unable to answer. He can't find the proper words - they come our garbled - nor can he string them together into a meaningful sentence.
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment.
