A Morning Delight

Most of our land is White Pine and hardwoods but our neighbor to the south has a delightful meadow that the dog and I visit several times a day on our walks.  We cross an old stonewall and enter into a clearing which is getting overgrown with pine seedlings and bushes.  It is a great place for seeing hawks, White-throated Sparrows, Song Sparrows, and Common Yellowthroats.  The morning sun hits it early so even in winter, it is a nice stopping spot.

There is a berry bush there which I always check for birds, especially now that the fruit is ripe.  Yesterday morning, I heard the Cedar Waxwings above me before I saw them and sure enough, one started working the bush, popping up for a morning photograph.  What stunning birds they are — and they seem to know it.  One of my favorite birds.

Have you got my best side?
