They have Returned!!!

They are screeching in my backyard.  And devouring the berries on my mountain ash tree.!!!
The cedar waxwings have come back! 

Right now they are mostly after the berries on the top of the tree, and I hope they will come to some of the lower branches.  It looks like a lot of juveniles. 

And they sure enjoyed it when I had the sprinkler going yesterday morning.  They were sitting in the spray, fluffing their feathers!!!

 There are actually 10 birds sitting on this branch enjoying the spray from the water

 They are well camouflaged in the mountain ash tree. 
Today was the first day back to school for the grandkids.  I told Nic if he had a good first day I would take him for ice cream after school.  So, I am waiting to hear how their day has gone.
