CEDAR WAXWINGS
The waxwing nestlings are arriving at Avian Haven, signaling the beginning of the end of our very busy summer season. These four came from three different nests ... all are doing well!

The rhythm of their late summer nesting is closely tied to the abundance in August of their favorite food - fruit!

               

               More fruit please!

COLO 1108 Wilton ("Lady Loon")
 Common Loon, rescued August 3 with fishing line wrapped around her neck and beak, spent a week in recovery at Avian Haven. She went home to Wilson Lake yesterday, and was soon greeted by her mate!

 (photos by Tony Nazar - thank you, Tony!) Please click on the photos to see all six of Tony's wonderful images of this reunion!

Identifying songbird hatchlings is not always easy, but sometimes the interior of the mouth is a sure giveaway. Guess who this beautiful mouth belongs to!

Yes indeed - Cedar Waxwing! Here are a few older nestlings ...



               
                  But I don't want to turn around ... can you just pass the berries back here?
