I love how the days are longer and I can take my camera with me on our evening walks!
Tonight we heard high-pitched calls, then looked up to see our first small flock of Cedar Waxwings. Normally we’ve seen dozens of these birds by this point in the season. This year, for some reason, we haven’t seen them at all (till tonight). It’s not a great picture, but at this rate, it may be the only shot I have of waxwings this spring!
We walked down by the Lakehurst pond and noticed a little bird poking around in the grass at the shoreline. I’ve never seen one before, but I think this is a Spotted Sandpiper. You can see his spots on the second picture below. I wished I had taken The Beast with me! The 400 just doesn’t have the same reach… :)
