Abundant Cedar Waxwings

     For the past 2 weeks I have lots of Cedar Waxwings in my Sunnybrook subdivision in Red Deer.

     First there were only 6 to 10 birds. This is the usual amount I see. Then the flock kept getting larger and larger. This week the flock probably amounts to 100. They seem to be eating in mountain ash trees.
     These birds are very late nesters and when they do start nesting they take their sweet time. If you blunder into a nest site you usually find more than one nest,
     Has anybody else had large Cedar Waxwing flocks this year?
