Cedar Waxwings are in Town!

At least once a winter, usually in February, I encounter an enormous flock of Cedar Waxwings, numbering in the hundreds. These I observed in the trees lining the Hannaford parking lot, some of which featured berries still clinging, even this late into the season. Waxwings rely on such trees in winter, as their other food sources - insects and tree sap - are unavailable. (They do also feed on cedar cones.)
