I whipped it out and started taking pictures. It was really hard to get a good shot because I was below them and aiming the camera in direct sun. I had to keep trying to sneak up on them and change my angle some. People going in and out of Pet Smart looked at me very odd and looked at the tree to see what I found so fascinating. They walked off and shook their heads over the crazy lady taking pictures of birds in the tree. I shouted to one of them that these are cedar waxwings with a big goofy smile on my face. I was hoping they were a fellow birder who would be just as excited as I was. They were not. They just clutched their children a little closer and smiled at me nervously as they went to go find their car.
BTW: Is this a crab apple tree? If so than I would like to buy two this year for my yard. The waxwings sure must have been hungry for these berries if they were willing to forge for food in the middle of the Pet Smart parking lot.
I went to the cemetery and saw my kinglet. He was too fast for me though and didn't manage to get any pictures as all. I did find a new bird for me that I am going to have to look up. He behaved just like a nuthatch, but was smaller and brown. The little bugger was very quick and hopped from tree to tree and wound down from tree trunk to tree trunk so a picture was not possible.
