This has been day three of cedar waxwings. They're skittish, but when the light is right, they can be observed among the loquats for long periods of time, complete with the strong yellow border on their tails and the red spots on their wings, with crests up or pointing backward. The fruits are beginning to ferment and attract flies and wasps. Some creature or group of creatures tussles over them during the night, making very odd noises. A neighbor has been making loquat cobblers and loquat chutney. There are so many slobbery pits around on the ground that the time has come to let them lie there and then pull up the resulting seedlings later.
