[va-bird] Fledgling Brown Thrasher & Nest-Building Cedar Waxwings

There was a fledgling Brown Thrasher in my yard today.  Its parents appeared to 
be teaching it to hunt cicadas, something they have been doing heartedly for 
some weeks now.
On Sat. along the road in front of my house, I watched two Cedar Waxwings 
breaking off the ends of Green Ash dead twigs & flying to a large, old White 
Oak where they appeared to be constructing a nest.  Today I saw a Cedar Waxwing 
active where they were nest-building on Sat.  Cedar Waxwings are one of the few 
birds I have not yet seen eat cicadas.
