I also saw a large flock of Cedar Waxwings exhibiting the same behavior -
hanging out in a stand of pines that were diving in small groups to sip
water from the edge of a small stream on my property in the Morgan Creek
area of Chapel Hill. I wondered if Waxwings have a special liking for
running water (more than other birds).
