Artist's Description

I produced this video for our Birdwatching Group at FortWhyte Alive in Winnipeg…For those who love the birds…Enjoy


Captured on the back grounds of Shelmerdine Nursery just east of Headingly, Manitoba, Canada.

Bohemian Waxwing Bombycilla garrulus..81/4 in. (21cm)..Similiar to the Cedar waxwing (yellow tip on tail), but larger and grayer, with no yellow on their belly. Wings with strong white, or white and yellow markings, warmer brown to face..Note: deep rusty undertail coverts (white in cedar waxwings). The bohemian waxwing got its name not only for the red waxy tips on mature feathers, but also for its bohemian behavior. They often travel in large normadic flocks…Shape in-flight very starling-like.

Voice Zreee, rougher than the thin note of the cedar waxwing….To hear their song click HERE

Habitat: In summer, boreal forests, muskeg; In winter widespread in search of berries, especially in towns where plantings fruiting trees can attract them.

Camera Details: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI, Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS Av 13.0 Shutter Speed 1/200 IS0 400 Focal Length 480mm
