WHERE MICHELLE CAUGHT THE BERRY TOSS – BELOW
Michelle was looking out the window when the birds caught her eye. Lucky for us because she caught one amazing action shot! Can you see the one playing with its food?? She writes: “There were hundreds of Bohemian Waxwings in our Holyrood neighbourhood …Check out the one tossing the berry in the air before swallowing. So beautiful!” Agreed Michelle – and thank you!
DID YOU KNOW? Bohemian Waxwings brave the winter elements along with the rest of us. They love love love fruit and berries from the Mountain-ash, Crabapple, Wolf-willow and Common Bearberry trees. Their name comes from the red wax-like droplets on the tips of their secondary wing feathers … no other bird has them.
