These beautiful birds are capable of creating a quite a mess. I'm always happy to have Cedar Waxwings make their yearly visit to my garden in late winter and early spring. They typically feast on the Cherry Laurels in my backyard, pooping little berry stains all over the ground while they're at it.
This time they went after the berries on the holly in my front yard, which you might remember from this post.
They travel in good sized flocks so they devoured most of the berries the first day, flying back and forth from the shrub to my next door neighbor's oak tree which hangs directly over the driveway and my white car. It's easy to guess where the stains appeared. Ew.
