Cedar Waxwings Winter Migration

Cedar Waxwings Winter Migration

The sleek Cedar Waxwing have been numerous over the last two weeks in New Hanover County. I have observed them in flocks of 30-60 flying into most often Cherry Laurel trees,which produces a black berry that the birds gorge themselves on.

The waxwing has a interesting high pitch whistle and in winter stay in tight flocks high in the canopy of the native fruit trees. Look out for them in your area, and be sure to notice the flashy yellow tip on the tail feathers.
