Late Winter Visitor


It’s early March already, but Bohemian Waxwings are still roving in flocks around Southcentral Alaska looking for remaining fruit, especially mountain ash berries. After a flock has gorged on berries, you’ll often see them fly down to the ground and eat snow as a means of rehydrating to counteract the osmotic effect of the high sugar content of the fruit they consume.
