Meet The Cedar Waxwing – The Cute Bird Who Loves Berries More Than Anything

Covered in a yellow, brown and grey plumage with a black and white eye mask and beak, this bird is not easy to miss

They are named ‘waxwings’ due to the bright red colored wax-like wing tips.

Native to North and Central America, these medium sized birds are often seen in winter gathering by the hundreds in trees eating berries.

They sometimes even become intoxicated by eating an overripe berry that began to ferment into alcohol.

Although some are known to cut corners by stealing materials from other nests already built by other bird species such as rabins and yellow warblers.
