Cedar Waxwings

Never thought I would be so interested in birds, but they are interesting and inspiring creatures that are created for our pleasure. Each of them has a different ‘personality’ that reflects on our human beings I found fascinating. Cedar Waxwings are not uncommon and they often travel in flocks. I have taken many pictures andContinue reading “Cedar Waxwings”

Tundra Swans

For years in observing the Tundra Swans come to our area, I found them elegant, graceful, and peaceful. They usually come in large flocks, the view sight is often a spectacular white with elegant body gestures and graceful movement in the air. Never have I seen them so loud and furiously brawling.

I barely used my camera inside California, but when the scenery beganContinue reading “Oregon Lifestyle – 2”
