New Yard Bird (and some Uncommon Visitors)

We were in the back yard this afternoon and noticed a large mixed flock of birds flying in to perch in our tallest mesquite tree.

They didn't look like any of our regular bird visitors so we got the binocs and took a look.

They turned out to be American Robins (an uncommon visitor for us) and Cedar Waxwings - a new Yard Bird for us. Very cool. and definitely worth getting out the field scope and camera.

The bottom 3 pics were digiscoped by holding the camera up to the eyepiece of the telescope. The round vignette shape below is the eyepiece of the scope.
