Will Stenberg

Photographer Will Stenberg was visited by Bohemian waxwings at his home in rural Saginaw this week. "They spent time bathing as well as eating flowering crabapples," he said. The Bohemian waxwing is a winter visitor from the far north, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. They nest from interior Alaska, east to the western shore of Hudson Bay, and south into the Rockies of the United States. Come winter, large flocks range across the northern United States, including the northern two-thirds of Minnesota. "Bohemian" refers to the birds' wide-ranging nature as flocks search for fruit in winter. The term "waxwing" comes from the red-tipped wing feathers.
