Shiny Red Ball

Tonight I was mowing the lawn when suddenly I noticed - up in the tree - pretty birds!
So suddenly mowing the lawn was forgotten and I had to go get my camera and take some pictures.
I have no idea what kind of birds these are but there were about 6 of them, and they were certainly very beautiful.
Charlie however kept his vigil throughout my side trip watching to make sure no cats got over the fence and into the yard. He was successful on his watch and no cats made it through his steely gaze.

    It`s a Cedar Waxwing.
    There is a larger "model" called a Bohemian Waxwing but it is grayer and has no yellow on it`s belly.
    It`s also scarce.
    The Cedar Waxwing is common.
