Bohemian Waxwing

Bohemian  Waxwing 3

Bohemian waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus)

This is one of our most irregular winter visitors, occasionally absent but often in flocks of dozens or more. It is slightly larger than the cedar waxwing, and even more colourful, with a deep rust on the underparts of their tail feathers and an extra yellow stripe on the wing. Like the robin, waxwings are primarily fruit eaters. They are attracted to high-bush cranberry, which keeps its fruit most winters.
