Spring Has Finally Sprung
Cedar Waxwings are kind of mysterious. They move in small flocks and you seldom see them unless there is food to eat.
I know next to nothing about these birds, except from what I've seen of them in the Spring the past couple of years. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has interesting facts that fills in my knowledge. They migrate in winter, unlike the American Robins who usually just bunch up in heavy cover in our neighborhood and sit out the winter making do with whatever berries they can find. I saw my first robin in February, when we still had three feet of snow on the ground.
