For the past two days we have had a flock of Cedar Waxwings, which we estimate to be about 50 in number, foraging on the berries of cotoneaster shrubs in our backyard. They come in waves, gorging on the berries, apparently filling their crops and then flying to adjacent trees. Another wave of birds comes to the berries and the pattern repeats. The waxwings have been accompanied by about six American Robins.
