Fun with Berries
Pestvogel -Bohemian Waxwing - Bombycilla garrulus
Past week I met this very friendly person in the train.
We had a pleasant conversation and it appeared he stumbled upon some waxwings that day.
I must admit I was a little jealous since i had never seen these beautiful birds in my life.
The next morning I planned to stay at home because someone was coming over to do some painting in my house.
Then the phone rang: the painter caught the flu, so he couldn't make it today..
Such a pity...;)
I decided I could as well try my luck and go see if the waxwings were there.
And there I stood....on a very clouded day in an unknown and very unattractive area.
No birds at all.
Until...al of a sudden I heard this unknown bird sound, like ringing bells....
To my big surprise I really found them.......in the top of the highest tree in the entire area.
Fortunately the waxwings use high trees as a watching tour, but as soon as they get hungry the whole flock moves to the smaller berry trees, which brought them at least a little closer...
If only the weather hadn't been so bad, if only my lens would have been a lot longer....
Oh well.at least I saw them, which was wonderful enough!
And maybe some day I'll have another chance to shoot some better quality photographs....
