Birds of a Feather
These beautiful Cedar Waxwings are not always in sight, but this summer they enjoyed the bath at Beaconsfield fairly often.

These lovely birds are among any number of feathered creatures that enjoy the birdbath on a hot day. And, we've seen the occasional fox have a drink here too!
