In the spring. and in large numbers, Cedar Waxwings arrive in a crabapple tree, looking for last year’s uneaten fruit. They have prodigious appetites, and can eat great amounts of fruit. Unlike many other fruit-eating birds, they consume the seeds and eliminate them as waste.
Captured in my front yard, a few miles north of McLean, Saskatchewan, Canada.
