      Yakkers,
      A life bird in your yard is pretty cool, particularly a Bohemian Waxwing. Many of us have trekked hundreds of miles in search of this sleek beauty of the Subarctic taiga...

      Hi everyone,
      This week I have been searching for a BOHEMIAN WAXWING especially since Andy
      Stepniewski spotted one in Mike Ropers back yard on Sunday. I spent several
      hours on Monday and Tues. in Mike's yard and only saw one lone cedar wawing.
      This afternoon as I was walking up my driveway to get the mail I saw and
      heard waxwings in the junipers along the driveway. There were also waxwings
      perched in several other deciduous trees nearby including poplars along the
      driveway near my yard. I hurried back to the house and retrieved my binoculars. I
      scanned the trees but only saw cedars, about 80 of them. I decided to go back
      to the house and get my camera and take some pictures of cedars if I got a
      good shot. I began scanning the poplar trees again and thought I saw a waxwing
      with a red vent. I got in to better position to view the bird and there it
      was a BOHEMIAN WAXWING.! The red vet was unmistakable and the bird was gray on
      the breast and larger than the cedars next to him. He was up about 30 feet
      and was facing me so I could not see his back. Just as I was about to take a
      picture something spooked them and they all left. Nevertheless it was a great
      view and a LIFER for me.
