What a special date in history, I am feeling the moment.
Image Notes: After being missing in action all winter, the waxwings arrived in style this week. I wonder if they are later than the past few years due to the mild winter, or maybe it could be the berries were not ready until now? In any case, it's a drunken berry fest out there now!
Cedar Waxwings are one of the few birds in the US that specializes in eating fruit, but they have to be careful as they are known to die of alcohol poisoning from over-indulging on fermented fruit. ;-)
