The Feeder Feed: bandit edition

Here is my annual berry bandit, hanging out like a Crazy 88 punk near the saké bar.

Oooppps… that’s not it…

    So lovely.

    What beautiful things the Lord has created!

    I love a cedar waxwing. They are so striking. I hope some day to check the Bohemian Waxwing off my life list. Thanks for the pics, Father.

    I love the cedar waxwing. I need to learn how to attract more types of birds to my yard. Robins, mourning doves, goldfinches and sparrows (song, house and the occasional chipping sparrow) are the only visitors I seem to get. Once in a while I’ll see a Cardinal. I could do without the house sparrows.

    Beautiful picture of the cedar waxwing…the bird, that is!

    A long time ago I saw one in a tree with a berry in its beak.

  6. Iconophilios says:

    I believe that the Latin name for the Eastern Kingbird is Tyrannus Tyrannus. The Cedar Waxwing is Bombycilla Cedrorum.
    Father, you should post the names only in Latin and let us try to figure out what bird it is.

  7. Tyrannus tyrannus! Excellent name.

    Love the picture of the wax-wing, gorgeous bird. They remind me of pale cardinals. I had the brief pleasure of seeing a few of these many years ago. We had a tree in the yard with some type of berries on it – yep, the cedar-waxwings must have gotten the intel and swoop – they came, they saw, they raided.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures of Mr. Berry-Eater and the cute Kingbird.

    Thanks for the laugh, Father! Thanks for the laugh. And just when I needed it too.

  10. Luke: You are welcome.
