Whoops! Amazonia1805, I missed seeing your comment! How lovely to learn the Waxwing has a bigger territory than I realized. My bird books though are mainly "Birds of North America." I visited family in a Swedish area of northern Finland in 1983 and was amazed at all of the different varieties of birds there. It was a whole new world.
I'm north of Dallas and traffic at my feeders has been way down the past two winter seasons. I think it's due to drought conditions. I'm getting fewer varieties of birds than usual.
Thank you, classof54gal, for the information. Not sure I've ever seen one at my feeders, but I'll keep an eye out next winter.
Lovely pic classof54gal.Like you, we have the lovely waxwing wintering from Scandinavia. I'm in the north-east countryside of England and have seen some over winter in my village - we have a nature reserve and bird hide with sightings of over 100 bird species alone - the photogenic waxwing amongst them. ; )
Fidget, they winter more or less in the southern US and summer in Canada. They migrate through the northern US states in the spring and fall months. Neighbor, we haven't had much winter so you're right that they'll be here all too briefly! Thanks for the comment, formersusan, they are gorgeous birds! Carole
Where do they go when they leave?
These are the most beautiful birds, and aren't you glad we have them here this time of year, Neighbor? They won't be here long, but they sure are pretty. Thanks.
