One of the few benefits of “Cedar Season” around here is the arrival of Cedar Waxwings. While the rest of us are sneezing and hacking due to pollen the Cedar Waxwings are feasting on the juniper berries. (Keep in mind that what we call Cedar here in the Texas Hill Country is actually Ashe Juniper, Juniperus asheii.)
It’s easy to miss the Waxwings because flocks come and go rapidly as they search for berries. It’s not unusual to see only 1 flock in a year and to see that flock for only for a few hours. But it’s a great show if you can catch it.
This year we got lucky. I was walking across the yard, noticed a flock arriving, and grabbed my camera. Here are a few of the shots I managed to get. Thanks to Loretta for some great work in post-production.
