Berry Shortage

Clusters of mountain ash berries in anchorage, Alaska.

Usually in December there is an abundance of mountain ash berries hanging from trees all around the Anchorage area, but not this year; for some unknown reason there are practically none.  That will make slim pickings for the Bohemian Waxwings normally seen winging about in large flocks as they forage for fruit, and I expect they’ll be looking elsewhere this season.
