Juniper berries


Here in the South, where they are a common wild tree, we call them cedar trees. They actually are a juniper — Juniperus virginiana. This time of year, many of the trees are heavily loaded with berries. I think that not all birds like juniper berries, but some birds certainly do. I had a large flock of birds (were they cedar waxwings?) feasting on juniper berries in my largest tree just this week.

Birds also use these trees as night roosts. This particular tree has a bunch of doves in it every evening.
