A loyal Disher with a head for grammar and a bod for cycling reports a sends this picture for identification. He/she reports “thousands” are currently in his/her yard. They are cedar waxwings. I think they are lovely and fun to watch. Some people around this office hate them because they eat all of the berries in the bushes and poop on their car. If you see a flock of this distinguished bird in your yard, cover your windows. The berries ferment in their stomachs and they “get drunk” and will crash into anything.
Also, several people have noted the sudden invasion of a “big brown bird with an orange breast.” American robins. I still have goldfinches at my feeders. Anyone else? They’re about to split the scene.
