Bohemian Waxwing

Very similar to the Cedar Waxwing, but these birds are larger with chestnut coloring underneath their tail. They were named “Bohemian” due to their unconventional, carefree lifestyle. In the summer their diet consists of mostly insects, but in the cooler months they will eat berries and fruits. I found these beauties with about 100 of their friends up in New Hampshire, USA. I was standing quietly in an apple orchard when all of the sudden a flock of these birds flew down into the trees around me. I tried not to move! They began eating the fermented apples on the ground, I think they were getting drunk! After about 15 minutes, I stealthily took out my camera and got a few photos of my new lifer!
