The Bohemian Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus) is a starling-sized bird with a circumpolar distribution. The birds breed in the northern forests of Eurasia and North America, but migrate southwards during the winter months. Their diet consists mainly of fruits and berries, but they also feed on insects as well as spiders. I have photographed these colorful birds in northern Germany in February and March 2015. Waxwings live here only during the winter months and enter parks and gardens looking for fruits. In North America, the Bohemian Waxwing occurs together with its close relative, the Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum). Nevertheless, both species can be easily identified as the Cedar Waxwing is slightly smaller and differs in its plumage (it has a rather yellowish belly, for example).
