In the early evening the Cedar Wax Wing will travel to the river . They sit in the dead trees waiting for a hatch. If an evening hatch progresses they flutter high over the river taking mayflies. They are no different than us. They are guessing. Some times they sit and sit...but no hatch...they will then disappear into the night. Sound familiar? No one on earth has been able to predict a precise, good hatch...including the Cedar Wax Wing.
The Cedar Wax Wing is an opportunist, they will travel the countryside in search of bush berries when in season. If none are available they will head to the river for an all you can eat sea food dinner. Your presence doesn't seem to bother them. They will perch on a branch watching and waiting. The Cedar Wax Wing has very colorful markings that are difficult to see at dusk (picture). Nature has always baffled me with her colorful creations.
So...if you think you are alone, glace up at the Cedar Wax Wing...he is passing time by watching you fish!
