Cedar Waxwing Sit-In #SOLC18 #PoetryFriday

A little ornithological snow day alliterative humor for this SOLC and Poetry Friday mashup.

Cedar Waxwing Sit-In

I really did have a whole lot of fun watching these masked bandits of the bird world hanging out during the waning hours of our latest nor’easter.



This post is part of the annual month-long Slice of Life writing challenge organized by Two Writing Teachers. Join us! It’s my second year of Slicing in the challenge. And it’s Poetry Friday, too. Michelle Barnes is hosting over at Today’s Little Ditty. I hope you’ll stop by there as well. If you want to take a peek at the Padlet of writing ideas I’ve created, I’m happy to share. Click here! It grows every day.

  1. Wow! What a beautiful moment! I had such fun watching the bird frolics at the feeders during the storm, but no cedar waxwings visited up here. I haven’t seen one for years. I love your poem and that amazing picture.

  2. Wow, it really is a syndicate! I love them, rarely see them here. You are fortunate! And your poem, that the squirrel broke up the ‘sit-in’! Wonderful!

  3. LOVE! I used to see these beautiful little birds more regularly in North Georgia, when they would come through and strip the dogwood tree berries. I’ve seen them once since here on the coast, but they were gone in a flash after their “sit in.” The humor in your language is perfect! :0)

  4. My mom loved watching and identifying birds, and the cedar waxwing, I always found fascinating because of the name! Love your pictures and your perfectly playful poem!
