Driftless Prairies: Native Habitat Restoration

Nature inspires awe!

Cedar Waxwing

Waxwings spend most of their time in flocks, appearing at times in the hundreds to eat berries. Some of the berries they eat are the invasive, nonnative honeysuckles. While this doesn’t make them sick, it does change the color on the tips of their tails from yellow to orange. This could have a negative affect on mating; it’s not been studied well enough yet.
