It's that time of year, again!

Young Cedar Waxwing on Yew

Every September into early October, we get flocks of Cedar Waxwings come through our yard to feed on the Yew berries.  (Yew berries are toxic to humans, by the way.) The birds put on this display of flying from our large Maple and Oak trees (both Eastern varieties, not native to NW Pacific), and then fly down either singly or in two to four at a time, and just have a frenzy of a feast! eating as many berries as they can!  It's very entertaining to watch.  (This was from this morning.)
