Flocking Bohemian Waxwings, Signs of Moose
I went out yet one more day to shovel snow off the driveway. It feels like I'm doing this every day. The sun was nice and the air so crisp and clean.
Here's a spot in the snow in front where a moose must have crashed for a while. The footprints are all around the mountain ash tree. (Where the Bohemian Waxwings end up on the video.)
And while I was clearing snow, a flock of Bohemian Waxwings flew in. I love to watch how they swarm. If you make the video full screen and watch closely, you can see them most of the way from the beginning in the lower right then as they fly out around the tree and then back on the left to roost in the tree. It was so quiet that I figured I needed some music, so I borrowed some from Waldemaar "The Bohemian" Music Video. His has much different and much better video, unless, of course, you're a bird freak. I hope he doesn't mind my borrowing.
