My son and I were on our way out to Meach Cove to look at ducks (too cold today for a 2-year old as it turns out) when we spotted a huge flock of Bohemian Waxwings along Bostwick Road. I estimated 400 in the field, and my photo later revealed 467. That number actually makes for a conservative count because at the time of the photo there were another 75-100 birds out of view in the ditch below the trees. In the trees they were so densely packed they were tough to count even after the fact.
There are a few poor photos here:
but you get a sense of the scale of the spectacle. If I see this many Bohemians in total for the rest of my life I'll feel blessed.
No cats were observed.
