I saw my first cedar waxwings in Monterey, CA this winter. They picked a tree completely bare of its red berries within a couple hours.
Eskarina, this is my best cedar waxwing photo ever. I didn't fiddle with the image at all. I got lucky; it landed in front of me.Neil, One can only imagine the terror in those dark ages.Mr. S., Thank you for that. It's about time someone addressed that issue.Katie, They are a very common bird here in the summer and fall. I remember seeing a flock in Albany CA (behind my apartment). They were taking nectar from the flowers of a Albizia julibrissin (silk tree). I didn't realize they were sort of rare down there.
I don't think they're all that rare of a winter bird here; they're just rare to me ;)
Good God, they are INSANELY stunning.And I like the strategy in their coloration:see these BRIGHT spots,don't see my eyes.Am I staring at you,or ogling a berry?You'll never know... until it's too late.Mwa ha ha ha!
