A huge flock of cedar waxwings had been hanging about eating the soft seeds inside the Manitoba maple and ash trees that had retained their "keys."
They quickly discovered the cedar trees and proceeded to put on quite a show.
There appear to be many birds that often go south spending time in the trees and bush along the edge of the lake. The swamp at the bottom of the tiny hill my new home sits on, attracts all kinds of wildlife and I expect the rest of the fall and winter will be very interesting.
Here's to a great couple of seasons.
