I chanced upon these Waxwings in a local park today. I was surprised they were making a nest. Using the 500 and 1.4 I was able to keep my distance and not disturb them

Cheers.

Jim

I love the Waxwings! They just quietly left from here end of last month. Nice catch on the nest building. I like that perch!

Thanks everyone. I found one more worthy of posting. Hopefully the weather will clear so I can get back and check on their progress.

Cheers.

Congrats Jim- those are very nice photos of CWWs indeed. I haven't seen any around here in weeks. Well done. Dan

PS - Which 500 did you get?
