Cedar Waxwing Calls
1st time siting in Houston, Texas. Thru my kitchen window, I saw about 40 fly in today and eat grape-like berries that were all over the ground from a tree. I grabbed my binoculars and was stunned at their beauty! It was exciting as I've have never seen this bird before. It was a real treat to see.
February 11, just had a half dozen Waxwings eating berries from one of our trees and then proceed to take a nap on our roof.
I look forward to seeing these beautiful birds every year. I was delighted to see them this past Sunday, March 8, 2020. I am worried, though, the number that usually fill the berry bushes and trees has decreased this year.
our home is on the edge of State Forest. open and woodsy. Hearing the calls this year for the first time. Falls Village CT.
I had a group of Cedar Waxwing at my bird waterer today. I wasnt familiar with the breed but assumed they are migrating through. They were brown with pale yellow underside and a bright yellow tail. It appeared to have a small tip of orangish color on wing tip. The high pitch call also helped identify them.
Early February - I spotted several CW in an apple tree on an old farm. The frozen, fruity apples were still clinging to branches and birds were cheerily taking full advantage of the winter bounty. Also spotted American Robin.
I had a flock of waxwings visit about two weeks ago. They came every day for about a week and stripped all the berries from my four huge holly trees. As they were feeding on the berries the whole tree shimmered and shook. So fascinating to watch these beautiful birds. The visited us here in Wilmington NC year, also.
