Photo Share: Bohemian Waxwing

The Bohemian Waxwing is an irregular winter visitor from the far North. They eat a lot of fruit. When the fruit crop is plentiful in the winter they stay up North. During poor fruit crop seasons the venture further south in search of food.

The name "Bohemian" refers to the nomadic movements of winter flocks. It comes from the inhabitants of Bohemia, meaning those that live an unconventional lifestyle or like that of gypsies.
