This is Episode 65, and it’s all about waxwings—birds in the family Bombycillidae.
The Cedar Waxwing is one species, and there are two others that we’ll talk about.
These beautiful, elegant songbirds are loved by people across the Northern Hemisphere.
Waxwings are easy on the eyes, for sure, and that’s great. I mean, personally, I think they’re just about the most gorgeous songbirds we have in North America.
But their biology is also really interesting. So much of how waxwings live and behave is dictated by what they eat… By their specialized diet.
What is that special diet? Is it maybe something like scorpions, psychedelic mushrooms, or the blood of their enemies?
Listen and find out!
