Cedar Waxwings Binge on Blueberries

Like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film, The Birds, birds are threatening this season’s Florida blueberries. In the 1963 movie, thousands of birds seemingly for no reason begin attacking people in a small town along the northern California coast.

In Florida this year, errant cedar waxwings, which like eating berries, are attacking fields of blueberries. Growers are firing propane-powered cannons to startle the birds from becoming comfortable in the fields so they won’t devour their crops.
