Greater Scaup and Cedar Waxwing

Today I found a female Greater Scaup at Brush Hollow Reservoir near Penrose. She was with a mixed group that included a female Bufflehead, a female Redhead and 2-3 female Ruddy Ducks. I guess this was an all-girl migrating group.

There was also an adult California Gull among the Ring-billed Gulls.

I enjoyed a visit at home earlier today from a flock of 20 or so Cedar Waxwing. They continued to eat the fruit from my pyracantha (Firethorn) shrub and were working also on my crabapples. I truly enjoy listening to their high pitched call. Listen to their call and get more info on them here
