In February a large flock of Robins came in. They feed on berries and insects..etc. Along with them came a small flock of Cedar Waxwings. I think this is my husband’s favorite bird. He likes the bandit look and the cocky little attitude.
He was more than willing to pose for the pictures….almost as though he were trying to show off his best side.
You can just see the yellow on the tip of his tail, below the branch.
They came in with the Robins. At that time the Peppertrees were producing red berries. This is a non-native..invasive tree and it really takes over. We waited for the birds to eat and leave before trimming them back. The Robins came to the bird bath in large numbers, and the Cedar Waxwings with them. Sometimes the edge was full of birds with many sitting in the bushes or the Tangelo tree waiting for a turn. The photo shows 2 Cedar Waxwings and a Catbird joining them.
