    Some of these birds, several of them immatures, came by to sample Mountain Ash berries. I often see them in the spring when they come for our Serviceberries. Then they disappear till the fall when Mountain Ash berries start to ripen. They sampled a few, then left. We haven't had a hard frost yet...

    Not a great photo as it's a frame capture from a bit of video. More of an interest piece rather than a technically good photo. I spotted these two Waxwings looking up like this, and thought they were looking up at some berries. The odd postures really caught my eye. However, they suddenly mated...

    A Tender Moment: Waxwing Couple

    A male Cedar Waxwing tenderly passing a berry to his mate. I watched these two actually mating not long before, and they hung out together and stayed close a good part of the day. The male would forage through the tree and bring three or four berries back in his crop and feed them to her. Very...

    A number of Waxwings visited a few days ago to check out the berries on a tree in our yard. Mostly the berries aren't ripe yet, so after a few tests like this, they left. They will be back.

    One of a flock of about 30 waxwings chirping away in several different trees. The way the colours blend on these birds makes them so interesting!

    Cedar Waxwings are social distance outlaws usually foraging in tight, dense flocks. They are a common migrant through our area especially in spring but much less common in winter. As seen here, this species specializes in eating sugary fruit and berries. Brown-headed Cowbirds raised in Cedar...

    Cedar Waxwings have made their presence know around my house of late. The lighting left a bit to be desired, but I liked the poses. FWIW, I have read that the name for a group of these birds is a "museum" or an "ear-full".

    Yup, these guys are still gulping down the berries. The berries don't even get a chance to fully ripen.

    I just cannot ignore these birds. And they may be around for a while. They will go after these Serviceberries, then the wild cherries and hawthorn berries later in the year, then Mountain Ash berries in the fall and into the winter. I have even seen them foraging on the lawn for wild strawberries.
