Cedar Waxwings are exceptionally adaptable in their food-gathering. Anything from sumac berries to a mayfly hatch can provide a great feast. They are also a species for which I have utterly failed to take a decent photo, in spite of decades of attempts.
Fortunately, I have friends like Dr. Ellmers who have the eye, patience, and skill to accomplish the task. I particularly liked this shot of a youngster harvesting multiflora rose hips.
