Bohemian Waxwing Bombycilla garrulus

Bohemian Waxwing Bombycilla garrulus

Aves > Passeriformes > Bombycillidae

A midsize migratory bird feeding mostly on fruits like berries. Mostly brown with white, yellow and red spots on the wings.

Aerodynamic shape of the head is unique for this species but can be confounded with its cousin the Cedar Waxwing. Different to the Cedar Waxwing, the main color of the Bohemian Waxwing is brown.

Only seen during winter and early spring feeding on bushes with berries. In summer they migrate to the North for breeding.
