This time of year pokeweed plants are beginning to die off to their roots, but the berries that remain are a staple to many birds, including the cedar waxwing. This photo shows the waxwing's red "wax" tips on its wing feathers, that give this bird its name. The tip of its tail color can range from yellow to orange, depending on what the cedar waxwing forages on. Taken on Sunday in Ontario.
