March 1st, Need Bird ID



This is the best shot I could get of these birds that arrived this morning. It wasn't quite daylight and had to take the picture from inside the house. If someone knows what they are, please let me know. Funny, I've been getting birds here in the garden lately that I haven't seen here before. There is red under the tail near the rump and yellow on tip of tail.

Update on the Starlings....I had been getting three Starlings at the feeders for about a week and a half, yesterday, around lunch time I looked outside and my jaw dropped, tons of Starlings all over the place. It will be interesting to see if they all come back again.

You have a nice flock of Bohemian Waxwings. The red under the tail and the little white patches on the wings distinguish them from the smaller but similar Cedar Waxwing.

Yes we have the Cedar Waxwing here I believe. They are really cute. I tried taking the picture through the window of the bird feeder and it was a mess!!

Yes, definitely waxwing. They are very similar to ours.
