Cedar waxwings fly in large groups.
They also perch in groups. (Easier to notice in winter when the leaves are gone.)
The cedar waxwing is a colorful bird.
This cedar waxwing is surrounded by robins.
The American robin has white around its eyes.
The robin also has white undersides. From this view its legs look like a couple of sticks pushed into some white foam.
The laughing gull has rather long wings for its body size.
A laughing gull hoping I would toss some rice cakes its way.
During winter the laughing gull's head becomes white. It returns to dark colors (breeding plumage) in the spring.
This one is still sporting a few white feathers near its beak.
I believe this is an immature herring gull.
It was the only one of its kind in with a flock of laughing gulls.
Ring-billed gull. (Not sure if this is juvenile plumage or just winter plumage.)
