An invasion!
Once in Sarasota I saw a flock of red billed Ibis berth themselves in a Lychee Nut tree, in two minutes they had eaten all that fruit then took skyward again in a mass ascension.

These waxwings are numerous... are they migrating already?

Wow. That is a lot of cedar waxwings. I love how they are mouthing off to each other. I bet you were excited having that new camera and a great opportunity. Good job.

Dani said...

FC, hehehe.

Fishy, yep, they're migrating. I hope they stick around a few more days.

Shamy, I was doing the BIG happy dance yesterday!!!!!!!

Been trying for a week and a half to get some pics of the little suckers.

Thanks Danielle. :)

Great pictures of the group plus you did an excellent job finding the pair of gossips in the group!

Grannie Annie sent me here and I am so glad I came. I just love these birds that zoom through my neighborhood but rarely stay long. Love the photos...thanks for sharing.

Bird nerd! bwahahahahaha.

I love the photo where they seem to be talking to each other.

REALLY enjoying the blue sky too.

Dani said...

Granny, I don't know what was going on with those two, but they were picking on each other the whole time I was out there.

Tabor, thanks for stopping in. :) Hope you have a great weekend!

Boxer, couldn't have asked for better skies. Beautiful perfect blue.

Oh wow! I live in South Florida - Ft. Lauderdale area - and I'd LOVE to see a Cedar Waxwing. They are more toward the center of the state than the south, I'm afraid. I did see that someone had located one just north of Margate, so I'll check there.....you have a whole tree full of them - how magnificent!!
