Cedar Waxwing (resident breeding birds), and Bohemian Waxwings (migrants and wintering birds that nest in Canada) are pretty abundant in Rexburg right now. I’ve counted huge flocks of Bohemian Waxwings that have over a thousand individual birds. There was a moderate sized mixed flock in our neighborhood feeding on juniper berries and drinking melting snow. I spent a little time Saturday photographing them. I believe they are among our most beautiful birds.
