COLOR CLOSE-UPS OF FAMILIAR BIRDS v INational ueograpnic society Kodachrome by Arthur A. Allen LIKE A MAGICIAN, THE CEDAR WAXWING PRODUCES FOOD OUT OF EMPTY AIR A moment ago there was nothing in his bill. Now from his distended throat the Cedar Waxwing whisks up insects and nice ripe cherries until he has fed the whole family. The branch of wineberries was provided as an extra food supply, but they were ignored since the parents always returned with full market baskets. Dr. Arthur A. Allen, Professor of Ornithology at Cornell University, made this remarkable series of photographs in natural color at Ithaca, New York.
