Cedar Waxwings

It won’t be long before we start seeing flocks of this gorgeous little bird in Tallahassee. Holly trees are a very popular landscaping tree in the state capital, especially downtown along Monroe Street and in some of the new residential subdivisions, like Southwood. Waxwings feed on holly tree berries and will often hang out close-by, in between feeding sessions. They sometimes sit for quite long periods, which is great for those who enjoy viewing and/or taking pictures of them. If you’re really lucky, you may encounter a big flock. At the Koger Center Office Complex where I work, we sometimes see flocks of 500+ waxwings! Quite a sight.
