Amazing stop action detail clarity, all of these give the viewer/me a chance to take a long look. First time that I’ve noticed, or paid attention to the Juvenile Eagle’s beak is black. The splash of Gulls dives, and one almost appears to be squawking at it’s reflection of self in the wavy mirror of the water. And the Waxwings, taking to different variety of berries. One even shows that the second orange berry is going in on the first. What is the little red tips on their wings. Do they actually have a small tip of orange/red on the wing? The bright yellow tail is always an addition to how picturesque the Waxwings are. Great shots.
The young eagles go through a lot of changes until adults. The feathers change the beak color changes the talon colors change the eye color changes. I like to watch the Bonaparts gulls feeding in the shallows flying as a group then all diving down to catch the small shad. They work back and forth around a bay, giving the shad time to school back up, then diving back in to them on another pass. The adults do have those red tips on some but not all. Always enjoys seeing the waxwings when a flock show up. They will work insects as a flock too in the spring and summer. Thank You…
Those are fantastic shots of the cedar waxwings, one of my favorite birds!
