Three Birds of 2007

For today's pictures,I went back into the archives.
All of the pictures were taken in 2007.
The Waxwings were taken by Jake and the Brown Creeper is one of mine.

This is a Bohemian Waxwing.
Note the rusty under tail coverts.
THis is taken just outside the back door at my house.

Here is a Brown Creeper.
This little bird is a master at camouflage.
They like to start probing for food at the base of a tree and spiral their way to the top.

Here is a Cedar Waxwing.
You can see the white under tail coverts.
This bird and a few others were feeding on the neighbours crab apple tree.

I am thankful that I have all these images to look back at.
Many of them bring back a lot of memories.

Thought for today:
Have you met with Jesus today?
He will encourage your heart as no one else can.

  1. The waxwings are incredibly beautiful Ruth. They're like paintings, aren't they? I almost missed the Brown Creeper, really camoflauged. What a cute little bird. Very nice post tonight. Blessings friend, Diane

  7. Your masked visitors are a delight to see. I think I saw a creeper only once, years ago when I was younger. I for sure did met with Jesus today and he reminded me of his promises to me.

  8. Ruth, wonderful images. I'm still looking to add a creeper to my list.
    The waxwings are my nemesis. I haven't had a lot of luck at getting a decent shot of them, yet! I will though

  10. Oh the Bohemian waxwing is just so sleek you hardly credit that he has feathers. The Cedar waxwing is just stunning sitting in the supermarket helping himself.

  11. I wonder if we have waxings around here. I have never seen one - but I sure would love to. They are such a unique looking bird.

    Funny how a photograph takes you right back in time to the moment you took it - who you were with, why you were there.

    Praising God for wonderful memories!

  14. Those waxwing pictures are most impressive...Such a beautiful bird. I have never seen one personally.

    I had to laugh when you said the creeper "spirals" up the tree. I have seen one outside our living room window a number of times this winter, but he moves up that tree so fast, I haven't caught of picture of him yet. You are really lucky if you notice him.

    It is neat that you and your husband both enjoyed photography. Just looking at the pictures you enjoyed getting together must make you feel close. Good memories to have.

    God bless your day!

  25. The waxwings are beautiful..did you know that the yellow will turn the reddish color due to the berries they eat? Yes, yes, I have chatted with the Lord most of the morning....and you have an open invitation to wonder my gardens. :)

  27. Seeing your photos of the two different waxwings makes me wonder if I've seen the cedars or the Bohemian here. Hmmm. Great photos and I think I am going to learn a lot about birds from you!

  29. I would love to get a good picture like yours of a Brown Creeper. They always move just as I get focused on them. I have only seen Bohemian Waxwings once.
