Waxwings in backyard & Photo updates

There was a large museum of waxwings (about 200 individuals - mostly Bohemian and some Cedar) hanging out in my backyard this morning.  I left my E-M1 camera at school yesterday so I had to use my phone and E-620 to document them eating the berries in the backyard.

Mostly Bohemian Waxwings (Bombycilla garrulus).

Taking photos from the kitchen.  I forgot how to use my old camera at that moment, so I had to resort to manual-focus.

Love their beautiful waxy-like tips on the feathers.

Then later in the evening when I was going home, I saw this Eastern cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) enjoying the sunshine and grass near the bus station (again, photographed with my phone).

While I was transferring the cottontail photo from my phone to my computer this evening, I decided to transfer other photos in my phone too.

For example, a sign of beaver living in Sawmill Creek Constructed Wetland from a few weeks ago (blogged here) .

Rideau River on March 12th.

Almost the same view on March 18th.

Apparently winter is returning tomorrow.  Sigh.
