Attracting Cedar Waxwings
I'd like to attract cedar waxwings to my yard. Can you suggest a few berry-producing shrubs that will help?

George: Mountain ash is a sure winner for attracting cedar waxwings. Other berry-producing shrubs that tempt these birds, as well as northern mockingbirds, are high-bush cranberry, hawthorns and mulberries. Even poison ivy is good because it produces white berries that are edible for birds.
