Bird picking berries on our Chinese Pistache tree


Recommended Posts

We get a lot of birds coming for the ripe green berries on our Chinese Pistache tree in October in Palo Alto, CA.  Most are regulars and I can identify however hadn't seen this one before (or since).  Not sure what it is?  A juvenile of some sort?

Thanks.

Thanks!  Thought that was a possibility but it was by itself (don't they usually come in a flock) and seemed bigger than I might have guessed (though hard to say when looking with my lens).

Sorry, I misread your post.

It's not common to see them alone, but it happens.

And I agree that your bird is a young Cedar Waxwing.
