Bohemian Waxwings visit fruit tray

We had some success attracting waxwings to a feeding tray in our backyard. The fruit is a wide variety of mostly wild-collected varieties [Arctostaphylos, Cornus (3 species), Viburnum, Vaccinium (4 species), Rhus, Rubus, Rosa, Ribes, Vitis, etc.]

We hung some pruned, fruit-bearing crab-apple twigs above the feeder to serve as an attractant.
