Marta-Thank you! They are, aren't they?! :-))) I usually find them near evergreen trees, berry-bearing trees/bushes and near fresh water sources. Two winters ago, we had a huge flock that would come down for a drink out of the frozen lake at an area kept open by my neighbor's geo-thermal heat pump where it exited along the lake's shoreline. I always say, listen for a tree with cricket chirping coming from it and you'll usually find a flock of Waxwings. At least, that's how they sound to me. "-)
