Winter Visitors

My favorite avian winter visitors are making the rounds of mountain ash trees still bearing fruit and gorging themselves on the bright red berries.  Bohemian waxwings lend an element of cheer to the short, cold, and often gray days this time of year as they move about in gregarious flocks, and when they locate a tree with fruit will perform all sorts of acrobatic antics to snag a beak-full.
