Cedar Waxwing

Cedar Waxwings
Bombycilla cedrorum
Ingram, Texas
ISO 400     1/1250     f/8     @200mm

One of the few North American birds that specializes in a diet of mostly fruit. Occasionally, they eat too many overripe berries and become intoxicated, sometimes to the point of death. Cedar Waxwings don't nest in Texas so you will only find them here in the winter.
