Large Flocks of Bohemian Waxwings in the Central Alberta Area

         Since Christmas I have noticed some large flocks of Bohemian waxwings buzzing around the neighborhood. I did not get any waxwings in my Christmas bird count but I had seen them before the count day.

      We have not had the large flocks for several years so it's nice to see them again.

      How many other areas have lots of waxwings this winter.


  1. we had quite a few in our neighbourhood in south Edmonton last week, have not seen them this week though.

  2. Hi Teresa, Thanks for visiting Natural Wise. Tbe winter invasion of Bohemian waxwings is always a treat. There have also been some cedar waxwings around this winter.
