Hey Joan! Yes Cedar Waxwings are in my area and I saw them during winter migration. They are the most beautiful birds! (One of the most)

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 9, 2012 at 11:18pm

Steph, I had no idea Cedar Waxwings are so lovely. Are they in your area? 

Tony, your glass frog and Andean Cock-of-the Rock are most intriguing and exotic. What a wonderful diversity of living forms.

Weather forecast change. Seems an expected cold snap is diverted. Whew! It is 9 PM and 64 degrees. More ripe tomatoes ahead!

Comment by Steph S. on September 9, 2012 at 8:53pm
Wow! A glass frog! I love how you can see the organs Tony! I'll have to research that frog.
Melinda that is music to my ears. : )
Nature is diverse and wonderful!
Comment by Tony Carroll on September 9, 2012 at 8:47pm

Yes Melinda, it is just so amazing how evolution works. It is mind boggling. I know this isn't a bird, but here is something else I have that blows me away. A glass frog.

Tony that bird is awesome!!!  Nature is so diverse and beautiful!  I love seeing all these birds.  And to think they came from dinosaurs!  Isn't that so amazing?!

Steph, thanks!  I would love to learn!~ Melinda

Idaho Spud I hope you get to see a hummingbird - they are so lovely!

Andean Cock-of-the Rock, native to the Andean cloud forest. Also the unofficial national bird of Peru. Strikingly gorgeous.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 9, 2012 at 1:23pm

Steph, I got busy doing other things and forgot to look for Hummingbirds.  I went out several times this morning, but saw none.  I'll try afternoon when it's warmer.  I noticed the flowers are near an end, that may be why.
