Gregarious, garrulous, and guileless, a couple of dozen Cedar Waxwings feast on the petals of a black hawthorn tree. This is the first time I have seen a flock of these birds feeding on the petals of flowers.
The Cedar Waxwing visits to breed here in the warm season. But, it also wanders about to feed.
One of the many Cedar Waxwings sits amidst its target blossoms of the black hawthorn tree.
As a bird depletes the petals at one spot, it quickly flies to another.
It seems that the thing being eaten is actually the petals of the blossoms.
And soon a bird is off to sample another blossom.
