Bird of the Month - March 2021

Cedar Waxwings ( Bombycilla cedrorum) are beautiful birds that visit Bald Head Island in decent sized flocks during the winter. They have a unique look and shape with a prominent crest and black and white mask on their head. They feed primarily on different kinds of fruits year-round. The name “waxwing” comes from the waxy secretion found at the tips of their wings. The function of this is still unknown, but it may help attract mates!

Every month we are highlighting a bird species that can be found on Bald Head Island. Through our partnership with Lew Wilson Art, new prints and ornaments that showcase the featured bird are available to purchase monthly. A portion of proceeds will help to benefit our mission. Collect all 12 of the birds, and receive a free print of the collection from Lew Wilson Art at the end of the year! To purchase this month's artwork, visit:
