Garden birds: Bohemian Waxwings
Usually, we tend to see Cedar Waxwings from time to time but the Bohemians come less frequently. And they are so brightly feathered that I have to admit they’re even more of a thrill to see. (sorry, Cedar Waxwings) If you click on the photo above, you will see a much larger image.
Bohemians have a body that is a little over 8 inches long and a wingspan of 14 inches. When I look at them, it’s hard to believe they only weigh two ounces.
In addition to the American Cranberry Bush fruits, they also enjoy feasting on the last of our crabapples. I have a feeling they’ve been fermenting over the winter so that should make for some interesting bird watching!
