The pyracantha berries are turning orange. In the winter we are always visited by a flock of Cedar waxwings who love the berries. The waxwings will descend on the holly and pyracantha shrubs in a large group, stripping the berries in minutes. If the berries have fermented, the birds can actually get drunk and will flop around until they get sober. But their digestive systems are amazing; the seeds of berries are eliminated within 45 minutes following ingestion.
We only see these beautiful birds when they come to eat the berries.
