A thunderpost wouldn't be the same without birds, and the occasional duck/butterfly/etc. Points for planting!

Lovely trees! And better with birds! I was interested in your waxwing - does it have a crest like our waxwings? Hard to see from the photo.

I answered my own question! yes, they do http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/w/waxwing/

Thanks! I'll be keeping tabs on that Crape (or Crepe) Myrtle. The mountain laurels got beaten down badly by Mr. Winter, but they're coming back. No flowers this year, though.

Gilly, here is another link to the Cedar Waxwing. I can't remember getting a picture of one before.

Alexia is right, a Thunder post is perfect when there are birds! Lovely photos.

Just viewed the link for the Cedar Waxwing you published for Gilly from the Cornell Lab. Are you following the nest came? I can't get enough of those wonderful hawklets and owlets!

We planted a tree two years ago about the same size as tour myrtle. Now it's seven feet tall and aregular perch for the birds but none as interesting as the blue jay or waxwing.
