Cedar Waxwing

Bombycilla cedrorum

Description:

Pale brown on the head and chest fading to soft gray on the wings The belly is pale yellow and the tail is gray with a bright yellow tail tip. The face had a narrow black mask outlined in white. The red waxy tips to the wig feathers are not always easy to see.

Habitat:

Woodlands of all kinds, farms, orchards and suburban gardens where there are fruiting trees or shrubs.

Notes:

I spotted only two in my tree although they say they are very social. I read they will line up on a branch and pass a flower or fruit down the line till the last one gets it. They usually don't come in my area till winter time, but as you can see by the branches it is not winter. I think they just flew the coop and eloped.lol
