Cedar Waxwings getting ready for their first flight.

August 3rd, 2013, 2am

This past spring we had a really bad storm move through our area and a pair of Cedar Waxwings sought refuge in our apple tree. We have never seen had these birds in our yard before. They built a nest and weeks later hatched three babies. It was amazing to watch them grown from helpless little babies to the day they took flight. I hope they come back again in the spring, but if not I am grateful for the nature lesson they taught our family- To sometimes just be still and watch nature unfold around is amazing.

David Wade, Theresa and Joanne said thanks.

I love the person I have become because I have fought to become her.
