Cedar Waxwing
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,620. Language: English. Published: May 22, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Home & Garden » Pets & livestock, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Amateur naturalist
Cedar waxwings are a regal bird with excellent manners. Unlike many other birds it shares food with its companions and keeps its feathers neat and sleek. It has sometimes been mistaken for a molting robin, especially when an observer compares the similarity of the calls of the respective birds. A robin is a larger bird, however, as cedar waxwings are not much larger than sparrows.

My e-book describes how and when people were bitten by coral snakes, and also the aftermath and treatment of these bites.

Indigo buntings are common songbirds that range from the southeastern United States, to New York, the Great Plains, New Mexico, Arizona, and the southern portions of Canadian provinces. I'm intrigued that a male indigo is oblivious to the hottest weather on summer days. One source I have used tells us that even in this heat a male indigo sings 6 songs per minute and as many as 4,320 songs per day.
