Waxwing bird sculpture

Waxwing sculpture carved in Yorkstone – looking rather keenly at the furry catkins on the willow stems!

Waxwings are seen from October to March, over-wintering here before heading back to Scandinavia to breed in the northern forests. Often they gather in large flocks, feeding in berry-laden trees and bushes.

They’re known for their soft, silky plumage and remarkable colouring – the red tips to the wings (which, it is said, look like sealing wax) gave rise to their name.
