Cedar waxwing

The other day I turned the lawn chair on the beach toward the tall white pines above the Writer's Lair and enjoyed the frantic antics of half a dozen waxwings, a species so full of avian ADD that they make sparrows seem slow and lumbering. They look like masked little Robin Hoods about to skewer the Sheriff of Nottingham in mid-flight.
