Scottish Birds

Waxwings

waxwings

Waxwings are winter visitors to Scotland.  They breed in Scandanavia, and some of them spend the winter here - which shows how harsh the winters must be in Scandinavia!

They are usually found in small flocks, feeding on berries, rowan berries being a particular favourite.

They will hang around a location until the supply of berries is exhausted, and then move on.

These particular waxwings were in The Figgate park near Portobello, Edinburgh.
