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

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.

It is 5:00 PM and the birds wake up from their nap and sit in the arborvitae, making a lot of noise, snacking at the feeders and getting drinks. The sun is low on the western horizon, coming under my umbrella; warm, a little breeze. A lovely way to end the day. I emptied a compost bin and spread it around places that look like they need a little zip in their lives. Not much, I don't want the plants to start another burst of bloom at this time of year. We have frost warning for this weekend for low areas (that is where I am). 
Hundreds of Sun Gold tomatoes still green on the vine and we eat them as fast as they ripen. The Stupice have produced nicely, but half are still green. I have an old quilt my grandmother made and has many of the old coats we wore when I was a child; she  later used it on her tomatoes. We get another season from that old rag  treasure.

Beautiful pics of Cedar Waxwings Steph!  I'm not very good with knowing the names of many birds yet, but I'm excited to learn on here.

More Cedar Waxwings

Comment by Steph S. on September 8, 2012 at 11:04am

I love Cedar Waxwings and saw a whole tree of them during winter migration! What a most beautiful site!

Comment by Steph S. on September 8, 2012 at 11:03am

Idaho Spud did you see any hummingbirds?

Booklover those are great! Thanks so much for posting the pictures. It's ok if the pic is the same - no worries.

So how is everyone doing this morning?
