Bohemian Waxwings in Gardner 2/21

I've been watching the reports of these handsome waxwings from up north for the last few weeks and some have finnaly eaten their way into north Worcester County. I was fortunate to stumbled across 4 in Gardner today that mixed in with a dozen Cedar Waxwings and robins. About 10 years ago there was a flock of over 300 Bohemians in this same neighborhood.

Below are a few photos:

This one was fluffed up and roundish looking.

Hopefully more will arrive and be able to find some uneaten crabapples and other food sources in the area.
