Bohemian flying


Bohemian Waxwings have been here this winter, but they are not nearly as common as they have been other years. A few flocks were seen, but they remained distant. Finally, some flew close.

A Bohemian Waxwing flies by showing the red waxy tips to its wing feathers.

    Ausgezeichnet!! For just a moment, instead of considering Bohemians flying, I thought you would tell us something about flying Bohemians. I am reading a book—Man Möchte immer Weinen und Lachen in einem— about the chaos in Vienna in 1919 by Victor Klemperer where foreign Bohemians were all the rage. Terrifying. Some today are talking about booking tickets to down under.

    Hi Alistair

    I could stare at this image a long, long while; and likely I will.

    The word masterpiece comes to mind: so blue, so alive, so in medias res.

    Thanks for doing what you do and thanks especially for sharing what sometimes comes of it.

    I salute you!

    Thank you Alistair for a lovely reminder . Large flocks of Bohemian Waxwings would delight us visiting our bird feeders year after year when we lived at Fort Sheppard now twenty years ago .
