Cedar Waxwings and The Inkwell

I'm blogging over at Inkwell Inspirations today with a book review on Karen Witemeyer's book To Win Her Heart. I'm giving this historical romance a 5 star rating because of it's such a great story I had a hard time putting it down. Come over and join our discussion if you get a chance.

I wanted to give you another look at the Cedar Waxwing that's hanging around our crabapple trees. Actually, there are a couple of them, but this is the one I caught in action. I thought they were going after the nectar. Apparently, it's the blossoms they like.

While I was out taking pics of the Waxwings, other birds caught my eye which I hadn't seen since last year. These included an American Goldfinch, Baltimore Oriole and a Hummingbird. They all flitted about so fast I didn't get a chance to zoom in close, but I'll try again tomorrow.

Hopefully I'll see you over at the Inkwell. :)


  1. I love the new look here and oh, your blog name. How clever. Wink wink.

    I'm pretty jealous of the cedar waxwing.

    One of my big 'birder' thrills was a few years ago, when I often saw an Indigo Bunting on my way home from work. I would see one flying between trees near an intersection (we're talking rural intersection). I saw it in different years but not for awhile now. It just took my breath away.

    congratulations on your word count for WIP.

  2. Hey Deb, thanks!

    Well, the clever name comes from my Inky sisters, although I'm not exactly sure which one suggested it. Perhaps it was you?

    And why would you be jealous of all my little cedar waxwings when you have a glorious orchestra of birds honking outside your door? LOL

    An indigo bunting? Really? Oh, I'd love to see one. Apparently we have loads of bluebirds here in Saskatchewan, but I've yet to see one. I'll keep searching, though.

    Thanks for dropping by.



Come on, tell me what you think...
