When I lived in SC, I came home one day to find a dead Cedar Waxwing in my driveway. No sign of injury and he was still warm and movable. I cried over it, but it was a beautiful bird; their feathers are so smooth and lovely.
Very true. They are known to build multiple nests at one time with the female choicing the one she likes best. I spend a good part of the spring and summer emptying blue bird boxes along a blue bird trail of these nest (plus the 3 boxes here at the house)
