Birding at Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

I spent a couple hours this morning walking around Stony Brook in Norton, MA.  I didn't even make it to the boardwalk when I heard high, thin whistling in the thicket next to the water.  I waited and soon saw a small flock of juvenile Cedar Waxwings.  The sun was behind them so I had to try to move past them to get back on a good side to photograph them.  They allowed me to pass them.  They stayed close, even moving in closer.   It was a great start to a great walk!  They are one of my favorite birds.
