Berry Thief!

Meet one, of the many, Cedar Waxwing's (Bombycilla cedrorum) that assist me in picking my saskatoons!  These beauties are our summer waxwings ... and if it wasn't for their beauty I think I might be a bit more upset at their berry picking tactics (get them while the humans sleep and get them fast!).  Well, the saskatoons are definitely beginning to ripen and between the robins, the waxwings, and various other feathered friends, it is usually a bit of a competition as to who gets the most!  As long as they pick off the high branches and leave the low ones for me ... I'll remain happy!  Haha!
