110 Cedar Waxwings
Behind the restaurant row at the Lakefront yesterday, a flock of at least 110 cedar waxwings was feasting on berries in the hawthorn trees. (Meanwhile, next to the waxwing activity in the restaurant row, the outgoing French restaurant was being remodeled for the incoming Italian one.)
The waterfowl situation on Lake Kittamaqundi was interesting, too. Mixing with the more common hooded mergansers were a horned grebe (the gray and white, red-eyed bird here, next to a merganser)...
...and a female lesser scaup.
