Orrrr, I could make a replica goose out of balsa wood, hollow out the center, don a wetsuit and waterproof my camera and just float on in!
Maybe I should lay of the Mission:Impossible reruns, ya think?

Thanks Suunto.
Funny I haven't noticed any before this sighting as it states it's "One of the most abundant forest birds of North America"

Cedar Waxwings with orange instead of yellow tail tips began appearing in the northeastern U.S. and southeastern Canada in the 1960s.
The orange color is the result of a red pigment picked up from the berries of an "introduced" species of honeysuckle!
