I was between two boat docks, as close to water level as I could get. I heard some ice crack under one of the docks and this handsome lad came wandering out. We were both surprised, and he made a hasty but dignified retreat towards open water, keeping an eye on me all the way.

Smile On Saturday: "Branches And Twigs" theme

HSoS

It's another Cedar Waxwing shot following the one that I posted a couple of days ago. There was a large flock of them on a tree with lots of red berries.

According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: "The Cedar Waxwing is one of the few North American birds that specializes in eating fruit. It can survive on fruit alone for several months...Because they eat so much fruit, Cedar Waxwings occasionally become intoxicated or even die when they run across overripe berries that have started to ferment and produce alcohol."

That's new to me, but a couple of folks who commented on my earlier shot confirmed that they've seen drunken birds fall out of trees. It didn't happen on this day though, at least not that I saw. :-)
