an ear-full

One group of Cedar Waxwings will eat first and then moves out-of-the-way for the next group to come in. A flock of Cedar Waxwings are called an ear-full.

  2. Interesting bit of information. I didn’t know that. I guess the ear-fuls move in so they can get a mouth-ful. Cute photo, Melissa.

      It’s a strange term isn’t it? I guess not any more strange than a murder of crows though…. (:

  3. Ha, back a hunnerd years ago, 30 years at least, i lived in a duplex that had a lot of yaupon and other bushes around that attracted the waxwings; always enjoyed them.

      Did you used to hear them first or see them? I usually hear the raucous and then spot them high in the trees. I have a few bushes close to the house that will eventually be mature enough to produce lots of berries and attract them closer. (: Hunnerd years eh? I feel that way some cold mornings myself. (:
