Bohemian Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus) - top & Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) - bottom
Westham Island, Delta.
There are three species of waxwings: the Bohemian, cedar, and Japanese waxwings. The name "Bohemian" refers to the nomadic movements of winter flocks.
Waxwings are primarily fruit eaters, but also consume insects during the breeding season. Fruit is rich in sugar but deficient in other nutrients, so it must be eaten in large quantities. Each bird sometimes consumes more than double its own weight.
