Hi
I have recently begun reading your blog, and I wonder if you think we will see any Bohemian Waxwings up here this autumn? We had a whole flock of them in March outside feeding from our berries, and I managed to make really good sketches of them.What wonderful little things they are, and their call is so fantastic! I am really crossing my fingers that we see them again .
