I have two purposes in creating this web page:

  • To increase awareness of the birds around us
  • To increase enjoyment of these birds

The cedar waxwing is a colorful bird that can be difficult to see elsewhere, but easy to see on campus!

During the months of June through September you will find them in the red maples around the IB building at the north end of campus. The best way to view them is from the third floor (north end of 4th Ave),looking down into the tree leaves, with binoculars.

To hear them, click on picture.
