Bohemian Waxwing

Uploaded: January 27, 2007


Hi Guys,

It's been a while since I last posted over here, but I had a great day today shooting all sorts of birds that where high on my wishlist. Highest in rank was the Bohemian Waxwing. An elusive species that only visits our small country (Holland) in small flocks during winter season. So here's one of the shots I got of the B.W
