Huge numbers of Cedar Waxwings

Friday was a very special day, not only did we band the first ever Kestrel at MBO but we also banded a total of 146 birds, a record for a spring day.

Out of those, 134 were Cedar Waxwings. To put this number in perspective, the previous record of waxwings for a complete spring was 77.
