Working Waxwings

Another busy week with nights away from home and no opportunities for any birding, or anything else for that matter.

A slim glimmer of excitement came today though as I spied a small flock of Waxwings on the route into work. Even better, just over an hour later there were 29 of them briefly perched up in a tree immediately outside of my office window. This is the third time I've had Waxwings outside the office over the years, though in the past they have loitered and fed on berries - very few berries left anywhere now.

It's been ridiculously windy here today, and worse last night. The temps are very mild and I'd be very tempted to get out mothing if it were more still.
