Cedar Waxwings

8 years ago

My husband and I recently rescued a baby Waxwing in our yard. We put him in a cardboard box and tried to feed him. When the baby "cried", both his parents would come feed him. After two days the parents coaxed the baby out of the box and off they went. It was neat to see him fly for the first time. I keep reading that these birds travel in flocks, but as far as I can tell we only have the pair and the baby nesting here. Is there something that I can buy to feed them? We have a lot of flowers and plants in our yard, but no fruit bearing trees or plants.
We live in central Indiana, and this is the first time that we have ever seen a waxwing.
