The sky was full of mares’ tails A robin showed up first. Then the waxwings came for water. You can see the dash of brilliant yellow at the tip of their tails. I couldn’t catch the deep red at the tip of their wings. More later, maybe.

Below you can see that wing-tip red from a migration through Placitas in a previous year.

While I’m at it, here are the Sangre de Cristos from Santa Fe Canyon to Truchas Peaks on March 21, from dry, dry Placitas.
