Suddenly there are more birds hopping about or flying in and out of the nearby birch and spruce trees than there were all summer. Too, some of the adult birds and their young are coming to the edge of the garden where the serviceberries hang plump and juicy. The bushes grow naturally here, and this has been a particularly good year for them. We rarely see the waxwings (bottom left photo) in this area but somehow they know where to find the berries.
Many thanks to our kind host, Misty Dawn, at Camera Critters.
