Markus Varesvuo - Waxwing, so sophisticated
Many birds have fantastic plumages; sometimes the patterns seem to surpass human creativity. Waxwing’s suit is elegant, with delicate yet bold details, the sleek tuft of crown feathers giving a definite air of flair. The zorroesque black mask adds some edge to the sophisticated whole.
These otherwise dainty and stylishly behaving birds, with calls that jingle like wind-chimes, can get quite rowdy in the autumn if they happen upon a tree with overripe berries.
