Few birds have cool styling of the Waxwing. I often refer to its' sleeker counterpart (the Cedar Waxwing), as the "Ferrari" of the bird world. In any case, I decided to throw some birds together along with birds I'm creating for some private parties for a new entry into my "Cool 'n' Unusual Bird" theme.

The Bohemian Waxwing is found in North America, Europe and Asia; It breeds in coniferous forests throughout the most northern parts of Europe, Asia and western North America. Breeds in open coniferous or mixed forests, especially taiga. It winters wherever fruits are found, including gardens, parklands, and cities.

They eat berries supplemented by insects (especially during the breeding season). They fly-catch for flying insects, glean insects from vegetation and pluck fruit while perched, sometimes hover briefly to snatch fruit. They swallow the fruit whole.

The name "Bohemian" refers to the nomadic movements of winter flocks. It comes from the inhabitants of Bohemia, meaning those that live an unconventional lifestyle or like that of gypsies.

While not threatened, this bird's population is decreasing throughout its range.
