That gigantic flock of Cedar Waxwings returned a few days ago to the large Juniper Tree here on my street. This time the flock returned to ripe or over ripe berries festooning the branches of the tree. Because these berries do ferment when overly ripe, the birds can sometimes get intoxicated from ingesting them! Lots of really big loop de loops in the skies. I believe the birds came out OK though and did not get harmed by this.
I also noticed a family of Northern Cardinals across the way on the roof of a home here. I also noticed a Carolina Wren and probably what was a Palm Warbler near the Northern Cardinal.
Some of the homes are seasonal and this one has not had proper maintenance as evidenced by the saplings growing in the rain gutter. It is not uncommon in Florida to see this when the gutters get clogged with leaves and wind or birds drop seeds on the roof. The birds were hunting for insects and also seeds on the roof.
