Cedar Waxwings still around....

After the fog from the morning lifted, I went out to the dyke to enjoy the sunny afternoon.

Nice view.

The Short-eared Owl in the distance.

A Northern Harrier came by and chased off the owl.

The harrier guarding its territory and searching for food. I took this photo using my new tripod today - with manual focusing to get the sharpest image.

The owl moved to another post.

What really surprised me today was seeing Cedar Waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum) still hanging around in Richmond. I always figured they would be some place warmer by now. Or perhaps this flock is just passing through.

Watching the sunset on a chilly afternoon.

Moon watch
Time to go home. But not before testing my tripod again and manual focusing and capturing the moon.
