Susan Nature Preserve in early May

The spring rains through April this year made the Skagit Tulips very late but they did make it finally.

I finally got a decent experience with Cedar Waxwings.  They were eating blossoms.

I wondered what they ate, when there were no fruit available... because Waxwings are reportedly exclusively  fruit eating.
