Greetings to all,
I was on the courthouse square in Sandersville, Ga. for several hours this morn. Scattered among the many tall trees were several large flocks of Cedar Waxwings. Approximate count was 400. It was absolutely stunning when one of these flocks attacked an American Holly tree and dipped and dived into its interior to feast on the red berries. These waxwings literally swarmed this tree and what a sight it was to see.
Yesterday behind my house in the woods, I heard two Pileated Woodpeckers raising a fuss. While watching them, I noticed one chasing another and then the chasee dived to the bottom of a tree. Then, this bird was fell upon by the other. Copulation took place in a very short moment. They flew off, one behind the other.
