These birds are so small, I visualized them to be as large as a Cardinal. They were a little larger than a House Sparrow.
The Kansas Field Guide says they commonly nest in NE Kansas. I'm located in SC Kansas, so I'm assuming they are Spring migrants. They like to eat tree buds and there are "plenty to be had of them, I assure you".
I counted 54 Waxwings in this photo.
This is another lifer for me :-)) There was a beautiful pair, but they flew off as I tried to get closer.
We found out what the Wrens like...this fruit & nut seed bell. It was overcast getting ready to rain.
She was also grabbing a quick snack before the rains.
He just wanted some suet, but the Starling's voracious appetites chomped the suet block down in a couple of days. Another great day of backyard birding!
