The lushes of the bird world, Cedar Waxwings love fruit and berries so much, they are known to get intoxicated or even die from overripe berries.
If they can find it, they will definitely opt for the snakeskin-woven-into-the-nest style of homemaking.
I had no idea, but these birds actually make a nest burrow in the dirt bank near water, which can be as long as 1 to 8 feet!
Super acrobatic, super cute, super spry and super spritely
I'm noisy and kind of aggressive, but I love acorns and I helped spread oak trees after the last glacial period. You're welcome!
You know me as the Virginia State Bird, but you might also know me as the bird that keeps attacking my own reflection in your window. (I can't help it! It's hormones!)
