Weiwers, native to Madagascar, are typically found in dry forests and grasslands; although they can be hard to spot due to their shy nature!

Waxwings, found in Russia or Scandinavia, draw attention during wintertime with their colorful feathers and sociable behavior.

In North America, Whitemargins can easily be identified by the white-ringed pattern on their wings as they perch near streams in woodlands or gardens.
