Cedar waxwings are approximately 6–7 in (15–18 cm) long and weigh roughly 30 grams. These birds' most prominent feature is a small cluster of bright red feathers on the wings. The tail is typically yellow or orange depending on diet. Adults have a pale yellow belly. Immature birds are streaked on the throat and flanks, and often do not have the black mask of the adults. During courtship the male and female will sit together and pass small objects back and forth, such as flower petals or an insect. Mating pairs will sometimes rub their beaks together affectionately.
Found these beautiful birds on top of a blueberry infested mountain called Mount Napoleon. The birds and I spent the afternoon eating the wild blueberries together.
