Cedar waxwings are back in Canada

This 2020 video says about itself:

Canada: Country of the freshly migrated cedar waxwing

One of the most well-guarded nature secrets in Canada has to be the abundant and striking cedar and Bohemian waxwing birds. They show off a colorful design with a painted like tip of the wings that appear to have been dipped in hot wax, hence the name.

As for the cedar waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) as seen in this footage, the wingtips are bright red and the tail tip is bright yellow. This beautiful bird that spreads across all North America feeds mostly on berries and hangs out in flocks of sometimes very high numbers. This footage was filmed on May 6th and 7th in Southern Quebec, Canada.
