Birds



This picture is greatly enlarged in the hope that I might identify this little bird. It's not as big as a finch and there was a group of them enjoying the water in this tiny little puddle today. I think he has a topknot. I didn't think he was a waxwing but he looks like it.


This is the way it's supposed to work, Mr. Squirrel dining nicely from his peanuts and leaving the chickadee feeder ALONE!
God bless you, Diane

Gee Diane, To me---he looks like a Waxwing.. BUT--if he's smaller than a finch, he must be something else. I don't really know. Maybe Bird Girl knows...Or Shelley...

Sorry I can't help.

Hope you had a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Diane, I thought at first a cedar waxwing but the size threw me off. I don't see anything in my book. Let us know what you find out!
