Vagabond Waxwings

February 26, 2010

Guess who is coming to dinner this week?

We are hosting hundreds of hungry cedar waxwings, who drop in daily to gorge themselves on our all-you-can-eat holly berry buffet. They come in groups of thirty or so at a time, inviting others to join the feast with their high-pitched calls of delight.

Their silky feathers, elegant crests and exotic black masks remind us of Japanese Kabuki characters, offering dinner theater performances in our front yard daily.
