I’ve shared pictures in the past of the lovely flowers of the Shad or Serviceberry (Amelanchier alnifolia), one of my early Spring favorites. Clearly pollination happened because the trees are loaded and the fruit is just beginning to ripen. The two large trees in our yard are full of hungry Cedar Waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum). I’m still hoping to harvest a few handfuls of fruit, but I may have to give that up! I could easily settle for a small handful and enjoy just watching these magnificent birds.
