|This is the first time I've been to Ram Island although I've wished to since I started birding . Thanks to David for taking Bill and me on such short notice.|
There is quite a thriving colony of Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills and Black Guillemots nesting there. Not to mention the Cormorants and Common Eiders.
|I have mostly seen small flocks of Cedar Waxwings this Spring but this was a lone bird and quite approachable. I saw him/her try to eat a cranberry at one point|
but I'm not sure if it was able to swallow it whole which is what it was attempting to do.

|These shots were taken on consecutive days, May 27 and 28 at the same location. They may be of the same individual although there were several in the area. |
In the top shot he was singing away at close range. The song is very musical if not a bit monotonous. East Jordan.
|Many people are amused by this bird's name which they get from the shape of the nest that they build. A dome shaped structure with a side entrance.|
They appear to have eyes that are too big for their stature, I expect it's because they spend much of their time foraging on the ground
amongst the leave litter under the canopy where the light is usually poor. It can make them hard to photograph as well once the trees are fully leafed out.
