While currently back in Houston, Texas, I spent a very enjoyable 2 weeks in Calgary over Christmas. Despite the cold (!), I got out a couple times, including an afternoon walk in the Weaselhead Natural area, taking photos of the local bird life as I walked.
A couple of Ravens announced their presence with distinctive loud croaks; as well as some more unfamiliar vocalizations.
Redpolls were abundant at the feeders
Waxwings ended up stealing the show though through sheer numbers
A small fraction of the waxwings.
It was quite a nice walk and good to see so many waxwings.
