Cedar Waxwing Bombycilla cedrorum

Description

I thought the flock of 40+ Cedar Waxwings that had been overnighting in my Loropetalum since mid-December had dwindled down to 10-15. However, on Saturday evening I discovered that it was only their behavior that had changed. They had previously been arriving in small groups and filling the tops of trees until, as if on cue, they would all dive into the Loropetalum together. Now, only a few are arriving ahead of time and staging (these are shots of 6 of them.) Later, a flock of 20+ arrived and, without staging, dove straight into the 15 ft Privet that adjoins the Loropetalum. Once they arrived the 15 or so early arrivals dived into the Privet as well. Shortly thereafter another flock of 15 (give or take) arrived and went straight to the Privet. As this is the first year they've wintered in our backyard I have no explanation for their change in behavior or why they changed bushes to overnight in. Most curious..
