Cedar Waxwings in my backyard

When I went out into my backyard today I heard the high pitched 'see-see' sound of Cedar Waxwings. I found some, including the two in this photo, eating tender blossoms in my neighbords apple tree while others waited in my blue spruce trees. As they saw me trying to take their photo, they sat quietly in the shade of the tree so they are best seen in the photo by double-clicking to enlarge them.

The waxwings accompanied the lispy songs of several Lazuli Bunting that were flitting about (usually deftly avoiding being spotted, then when spotted, avoiding having their photos taken).
