Cedar Waxwings Drinking

Posted on May 31, 2016

It is getting warm out there! As we move towards summer you will find more and more birds trying to stop for a drink or a bath in a puddle or rain pool near you. If you have a yard that you can provide fresh and clean (and clean cannot be emphasized enough) water then you will find a lot more visitors stopping by, including some you didn’t expect. A flock of Cedar Waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum), like these birds enjoying rainwater, might be an unusual sight from the window of your home when they come over for a drink. If you can offer water year-round from a well-maintained and heated source then you will be seeing all sorts of life loving it.
