… This morning I saw the most stunning bird sitting in my fig tree. I had never seen anything so perfect looking with such flawless plumage. It almost didn’t look real. Then I spent all morning looking online for the bird whose “tips had been dipped in paint”, as I described it.
Meet the Ceder Waxwing.
They’ve been known to fly in rowdy groups and get drunk off berries.
A bird after my own heart.
