BSI friend Gary Stewart recently forwarded along some beautiful images his wife Bette was able to snag of some Bohemian Waxwings outside their home in Alberta. As you can tell by the photos, they really took a liking to the crabapples!
“Grizzly Bear Birds”, as Jeff likes to call them due to their strikingly similar habitat range with the large brown omnivores, are more common in the western half of the United States and Canada. But don’t be surprised to find them further east as they’re known to pop up occasionally even as far east as the Atlantic, as colleague Valerie Courtois noted when some showed up in Goose Bay, Labrador.
Here are the shots. Kudos to Bette for her camera skills to capture them!
