Waxwings

These branches are now empty.  For the past two weeks flocks of waxwings filled the trees and our orchard.  We did not net our plants this year.  Too busy to check mush on the orchard at such an early date we at least knew that they were feeding on green ones.  But last weekend all the birds simply disappeared.  Checking today the plants are still loaded…some ridiculously so.
