WAXWING PARTNERS - Most songbirds in North America time their nesting efforts to coincide with the explosion of insect larvae on new plant growth early in the summer. Waxwings also feed their young a protein-rich diet of insects, but they delay their nesting until late in the summer so that young fledge at a time when fruit is abundant. This Waxwing pair seemed to be partnering up to collect ripe cherries and deliver them to the nest.
