In search of a rare bird.

We had a Townsend's Solitaire at Rondeau on Sunday.
We went looking for it this morning but didn't find it.
We did find a flock of about 50 cedar waxwings which was a nice treat.

Bombycilla cedrorum

Building a nest takes a female Cedar Waxwing 5 to 6 days and may require more than 2,500 individual trips to the nest. They occasionally save time by taking nest materials from other birds’ nests, including nests of Eastern Kingbirds, Yellow-throated Vireos, orioles, robins, and Yellow Warblers. source- Cornell Lab or Ornithology.
