I have been waiting since the fall for some wandering birds to find our beautiful American bittersweet berries and it finally happened. On Sunday, during our recent storm a passing Bohemian Waxwing stopped to feed. It stayed around all day long and
As I watched the waxwing thrusted itself upward immersing itself within the berry laden branches at the top of the pergola. You can see its cinnamon coloured tail hanging down as the waxwing feeds and clings to the branches and berries at the top of the pergola. A grand performance beautiful bird.!!! Well done!!
I don't know if they will return again today as most of the berries have been all eaten. Fortunately for the waxwing that it found an abundant supply of food on two extremely stormy blizzarding days.
