Cedar Waxwings Update

More About Birds and Animals...



Our cat watching birds through the window

Skittles tried to jump through the window a few minutes after I took this photo. Ordinarily, she understands and respects glass, but she was momentarily carried away by her instincts as she watched the cedar waxwings hopping around in the branches just a few feet from her.

I took this photo Saturday morning, and that was the last day that I saw the waxwings. The pyracantha bushes are now completely stripped of berries, so I'm sure they have moved on. It will be interesting to see if they come back next year.

A year ago on Prairie Bluestem, I wrote about "A Beautiful Old House" and "The War-Time Guide Book."

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
