Right Up Close: Cedar Waxwing

In winter, Cedar Waxwings typically travel in flocks, scouting for areas with persisting fruit for them to feed on. To improve your odds of finding such a flock, keep your ears open for their high, buzzy calls.  Once you've found some, make sure to check the flock for oddballs -- you just might find Bohemian Waxwings mixed in.  Bohemians are slightly larger birds with red under-tail coverts and white in their wings, who irregularly visit parts of New England during the winter months.
