I enjoyed a recent drive along little travelled country roads.
At one point, I came across these two very lifelike scarecrows.
Every time I saw a bird on a wire, I tried to get a photo and succeeded with these:
I will identify it at the end of the post.
The crest helps identify this as a Cedar Waxwing.
Come ye into the summer woods;
There entereth no annoy;
All greenly wave the chestnut leaves,
And the earth is full of joy. – Mary Howitt (1799–1888)
So lifelike they scared me! Beautiful pictures of birds and botany. But I should have gotten the Cedar Waxwing!
