Cedar Waxwing

Why didn’t the chicken skeleton cross the road?

Because he didn’t have enough guts

Interesting Fact: The Cedar Waxwing is one of the few North American birds that specializes in eating fruit. It can survive on fruit alone for several months. Brown-headed Cowbirds that are raised in Cedar Waxwing nests typically don’t survive, in part because the cowbird chicks can’t develop on such a high-fruit diet. ( )

  4. We see flocks of Cedar Waxwings mostly during the Fall migration south. They perch in the tops of the trees, which by then are bare, overnight. As the sun first begins to shine and warm them up, they go to eating the fruit on the dogwood and blackgum trees. By mid-morning, they are off to the next destination in the forest.
