Cedar Waxwings

Several times this year we had up to 125 Cedar Waxwings land in our garden.

Thank you for your amazing pictures, Marinus, they are lovely!

Many years ago when I first emigrated to Canada, I lived in Timmins, and that is where I first saw Cedar Waxwings - I thought they were such beautiful birds, as I had never seen birds like them.

A flock of them would land in a Mountain Ash tree and quickly eat each and every one of the orange berries!

2015, and I have only seen a couple of pairs of Waxwings, and I have lots of cherries. Last year the same.

Sad to see

In early June a young Cedar Waxwing was found dead on my terrace.

It apparently hit the glass or rail, it was obviously alone, but I believed they travel in groups, so this one may have been lost.

It was definitely was a Waxwing, the colours and eye patch are very distinctive.

This is the first I have ever seen in Toronto. sorry to see that it was killed.
