Bonjour
Le Jaseur boréal est un oiseau grégaire qui nous arrive souvent en février pour se nourrir des pommettes gelées qui demeurent tout l'hiver accrochées au branches des Malus. Ce que cete photo a d'intéressant, c'est qu'elle fait bien voir les sous-caudales marron qui le distinguent à coup sûr de son semblable, le Jaseur d'Amérique (Bombycilla Cedrorum).

Hello
The Bohemian Waxwing is a gregarious bird that visits us in February to feed on the remaining frozen fruits that still hang to the branches of the crabapple trees. This photo is interesting for me because we can see the rusty undertail coverts that distinguish it clearly from the other species Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla Cedrorum).

Bonjour Serge,

This is a fine composition of this exotic looking bird. I like the withered crab apples that show the affects of winter past. The tail & head plumage compliment the fruit's hues well & the baby blue sky a perfect backdrop for this well focused image. Very well done.
Kind regards,

Derek

Bonjour Serge,

Belle capture. Superbe travail technique, netteté, exposition, etc. Joli point de vue nous offrant un joli ciel bleu comme fond. Le contrast du rouge et du bleu ciel est plaisant. Comme toujours du beau travail.

Today is the 226th birth anniversary of John James Audubon (April 26, 1785 – January 27, 1851) a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter.
Let us celebrate his birthday with bird photography.
