More downtown Waxwings


The Waxwings are still putting on a show in the middle of Hakodate...............


I haven't got bored of them yet............



They were still on the main street in a big flock. There was a swarm of them on a tiny tree but I couldn't cross the road in time. Luckily there were a few tame random ones about...............


I had the 100-400 today. As you can see it was a sunny day.

There seemed to be a lot more Bohemian Waxwings today. Was this another flock?








But there were still lots of Japanese Waxwings............



January 2018 has seen a quite spectacular Waxwing invasion into Hakodate so forgive me for milking it.







And when there were no Waxwings there were Bramblings..............







A distant female Merlin flew over later in the afternoon and it seemed to be carrying a small bird. Had it nabbed a Waxwing.............?

    1. You must get them in winter there, right?

    2. Cedar Waxwing is a fairly common resident species, and we occasionally see Bohemian Waxwings, but generally farther north.

    3. For some reason I thought there'd be loads: my mistake.
