Artist's Description

A pair of Cedar Wax Wings sitting side by side, looking as if in very deep thoughts of their future. There were actually several wax wings feeding in this particular tree which is consistent with their flocking behaviour.<P>This social bird generally travels in large flocks in the nonbreeding season and may even nest in loose colonies.

The Cedar Waxwing is one of the few temperate dwelling birds that specializes in eating fruit. It can survive on fruit alone for several months. Unlike many birds that regurgitate seeds from fruit they eat, the Cedar Waxwing defecates fruit seeds. At times, the Cedar Waxwing can become so intoxicated on over ripe fruit that it cannot even fly. It is also, however, vulnerable to alcohol intoxication to the point of death after eating fermented fruit.
