Cedar Waxwing R.I.P.

Today I found my first window-kills of the fall migration, two Cedar Waxwings. One was fresh, the other was pancaked and had been there for a while, both in the same alley. There was a nice big pane of glass that these birds probably ran into, but it was odd that they found their way into that particular alley in the first place.

This is getting a bit tedious, but I'll play it straight: I did not take pictures because I did not have a camera.
