Cedar Waxwing in the Rain

The yellow tips on a bunch of birds zipping around in the rain finally clued me in that these were the cedar waxwings.  I thought I’d seen them before, but those were the Bohemians.

Cedar Waxwings Get Spring Berries

The Cedar Waxwings are back along the Holland River.  There are two bushes that have kept berries from last year, one black berry bush and one that has what look like cherries. Three waxwings have been in and out of the bushes each morning, getting an early start on clearing out last year’s berries.
