Waxwing Christmas


For the past few years a few Cedar Waxwings have visited our yard seeking crab apples. This year, however, I was enthralled to see a few hundred wheeling in flight over Enterprise. I remember my mother pointing out these birds to me when I was a child living in Baker City, Oregon. Now that I live in Wallowa County, I get to enjoy them every fall for a short while as they gather in my yard and around the city. They enjoy the leftover apples hanging in the mostly leaf-less trees before heading off to their winter living areas. I wonder where these specific birds end up? If they were still here at Christmas… I think they would really enjoy a wagon full of apples.
