Recent weather washed away the perches that the Cedar Waxwings used in the middle of my local creek. I set up a branch so that it stuck up in the area that they preferred and as soon as I walked away, one bird was perched on it. This branch has since washed away.

For #Bird-Photography's Weather contest showing wind.

It looks horrified that you took a photo of its plumage not perfect. WAXWING PLUMAGE IS ALWAYS PERFECT, they can't let the world think otherwise!
