An entire flock of Cedar Waxwings stayed in the yard all day today. These sleek birds are very striking with their masked eyes, bright red-tipped wings and bright yellow tips on their tail feathers. They were busy eating the evergreen hedge berries most of the day and every now and then would fly up to a nearby poplar and rest in the sunshine, almost always sitting in rows along the branches.
According to wikipedia, when the end of a twig holds berries that only one bird at a time can reach, members of a flock will line up along the twig and pass berries beak to beak down the line so that each bird gets a chance to eat. Click photos to enlarge.
