Subject: [southbaybirds] Cedar Waxwings
This week I’ve had a large flock of Cedar Waxwings in my front yard. I have a mulberry tree that makes an awful mess on the sidewalk and the street and anyone who dares park underneath it. But it also brings a number of fun birds like the Waxwings. Today I watched one arrive at the top of the tree on a bare branch. After a minute, it started calling and the rest of the flock joined. They don’t always stay long, often darting to the maple tree next door. It’s so much fun to see these beautiful birds all day long.

While watching the waxwings this afternoon I saw House Finches, California Towhee, Black Phoebe, and a Red-tailed Hawk high overhead.
