Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

 

Cedar Waxwings are a lovely songbird that love to eat berries.  Our neighbors have three Holly Oak trees that are full of bright red and tasty for birds, berries.  A few days ago, I noticed a large flock of birds circling around the neighborhood alighting on tall trees and then moving on to another area of trees.

Since I believed that these birds were Cedar Waxwings from their appearance and behavior, I watched from a distance while the birds swarmed the Holly Oaks taking berries with abandon!  Quite the sight.  I had to stay pretty far away because whenever the birds spotted me, off they would fly.

I think my neighborhood is on the normal migration route for these birds on their trip back up North.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!
