How to Attract Cedar Waxwing

One of the most magnificent of all North American birds, the key to attracting Cedar Waxwings is simple ÔÇô GROW FRUIT & BERRIES. Without fruit-producing tress/shrubs attracting a Cedar Waxwing (which eats berries year-round) can be quite difficult. Some Cedar Waxwing favorites include: Eastern Red Cedar, Hawthorn, Crabapple, Flowering Dogwood, Wild Cherry, Winterberry, Serviceberry, and Elderberry ÔÇô among many more. Waxwings also enjoy water for both drinking and bathing; they are often found near rivers, ponds, and streams but something as small as a birdbath can increase your odds. In summer (while breeding), Cedar Waxwing will supplement their berry-rich diet with some insects.
