Cedar Waxwing

Bombycilla cedrorum


the Cedar Waxwing is a silky, shiny collection of brown, gray, and lemon-yellow, accented with a subdued crest, rakish black mask, and brilliant-red wax droplets on the wing feathers. Depending on what berries the birds may have eaten, the tips of the tail feathers will either be yellow or red/orange in color.


Look for Cedar Waxwings in woodlands of all kinds, and at farms, orchards, and suburban gardens where there are fruiting trees or shrubs.
