Cold front was suppose to push through the night of the 14th and 15th and be clear and breezy. They missed the snow/rain on the backside of the system. So my plans to take an afternoon walk with clear skys and a light breeze was well not in the cards.
The cards were WINDY and Grey with flurries. I already had plans to get up to the graveyard to see what I could see for birds and if I could try a different focal length for the headstones.
This is one of the headstones that I had missed until this day. The anchor is what caught my eye. Shortly after this image there was a flurry of bird activity before the next round of wind and pelting snow came through and in the period of 15min I saw around 30 species of birds then nada.
This guy was one of two mixed into a flock of Robins (American) . While I am not happy with with this image as a final image for this speices or one I can print it is 1000000x better than what I had so I will take an improvement. The background is cluttered for my liking but I do like the moment. It is a cedar waxwing.
Color makes it so much easier to ID the bird if you are not use to seeing it. The crest and black stripe are two major clues for me. The color/s are the next clue.
Now the question is what are we going to do today Brain???? (reference from Pinky and the Brain).
