(35)Cedar Waxwing

The Cedar Waxwing is a most handsome bird. It almost looks like it is sculptured out of wax. These are berry eaters, and you find them quite abundantly in the EcoScape around plants and shrubs that produce berries. During the winter, they may form rather large flocks of a hundred or more on the Birmingham-Southern College campus. We suppose that they are called Cedar Waxwings because they sometimes roost in cedar trees.
