Bird of the day: February 10

February 11, 2021 Brooklyn Eagle Staff

A Cedar Waxwing, seen in Brooklyn Bridge Park, January 2021. The Waxwings have a colorful scientific name: Bombycilla cedrorum. In no danger of extinction, they love fruit. Over-ripe berries that have fermented in the sun have intoxicated flocks of cedar waxwings, causing them to crash into windows.
