Waxwings in the Netherlands

This video says about itself:

A flock of Waxwings drink from a hole in the ice. The flock was filmed on the canal at Crossflatts, near Keighley, West Yorkshire, UK in the winter of 2010 and 2011 when there was a significant influx of this species.

Today, a group of about twenty Bohemian waxwings, near the fire brigade building in the north-west of Leiden, the Netherlands. They were eating berries, and attracted wildlife photographers.

Photos are here.

A sound recording is here.

  1. Superb, I’ve kept my eye open for these birds in the winter but so far no luck, not to worry though, this film gives a great look at them! Thank you. SN.
