Got poop? This Cedar Waxwing does...

Recovering bird's digestion works just fine...

From our friends at Wild Care Cape Cod in Eastham:

Got Poop? This Cedar Waxwing does! He's been devouring fruit, mealworms, waxworms, and especially loves his fresh blueberries. This beautiful bird came to us on 1/13 after it struck a window in Dennis. The bird was stunned and received cage rest and supportive care from our caring staff. He is being flight tested in our aviary right now, and will be released ASAP. Cedar Waxwings are sleek, lovely songbirds known for their wax-like wingtips. Their fall and winter diet consists largely of berries. Listen for their high-pitched whistle all times of year in New England woodlands.
