The Waxwings are Here!
As the snow sifted down yesterday afternoon, the waxwings appeared, just in time. They settled in the poplars down the road, looking like winter blossoms.
These most wonderful birds devour all the berries left from summer, moving from bush to bush and tree to tree across the landscape as the winter progresses.
And they take turns! They are very polite and generous that way, and in the end everyone gets fed.
Some days I’m full of ideas, but right now I just want to say I love waxwings!
And that, I think, is a physical kind of idea that fits into a human rather than a statistical science. Humans and bohemian waxwings … together they make light.
And reflect it perfectly.
