Notes on nature, phenology, environmental philosophy, gardening, music, and the pursuit of the Good Life in the northwoods of Minnesota.
You had perfect company. It sounds heavenly.
I wonder if these guys are in trouble or have just changed their route.I used to see swarms of CW's that would descend on a hackberry or holly tree and strip it like one giant organism.I haven't seen that in a long time and I am out there a lot.
They are such cool birds. I keep hoping they will come strip a bush for me so that I can see them again!
Lynne- it was. Heavenly.FC- They seem to be doing just fine around here. Interesting observation...Webb- This one and a few others did not fly away from the alder where they were perched when Joe and I came close. Perfect photo opp! Some of them were hovering and swooping over the creek to catch bugs, which I hope were mosquitoes. And if I planted a shrub that kept its berries over winter, I might even see its cousin, the Bohemian waxwing.
