Cedar Waxwings

One of the great joys of migration is that twice a year I get to witness the gathering hundreds of these marvelous birds. Over the last couple of days their frenzied activity has occurred in my back yard, coming and going to the bird bath and feasting on the berries in the tress all around my yard and the neighbors'.

I was spending a good deal of time watching and trying for a good digiscoped photo of these when they exploded from the yard en masse and hightailed it for some distant shelter. Immediately searching the sky above me, I found a Cooper's Hawk gliding across the ravine headed my way.
