Bohemians visit from the north

A flock of Bohemian waxwings rests in an aspen tree while searching for food in west Ketchum last week. The Bohemian waxwing visits Idaho from points in the far north, where it lives in forested areas. The colorful birds get their name from their nomadic lifestyle; they move frequently and do not maintain an established territory. Their diet consists largely of fruit. In the Wood River Valley, they are sometimes seen eating old fruit that did not drop from trees in the fall. There were approximately 200 birds in this flock. Photo by Roland Lane
