City of Wild: Bohemian waxwings in Yantai City, east China
The Bohemian waxwings have pointed crests, black face markings and mainly grey plumage. Their feather tips have a red waxy appearance, hence the name. They can be seen in migration seasons such as winter, spring and autumn in most areas of China. Waxwings are primarily fruit eaters, but sometimes they consume insects. Here are some photos of the Bohemian waxwings foraging on trees. The photos were taken in Yantai, a city in east China's Shandong Province.
