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.
