Cedar Waxwing that finally dropped by our place
About This Image
Cedar Waxwing near our front patio. Waited/hoped for sometime for these birds to stop by here, we see them only once or so each summer, and it was just lucky that I was still at the window when this one stopped by a few days ago. (captured from open front window with telephoto lens).
He heard the water and was looking towards it, initially, - I hoped he'd come into the patio for a drink, but he flew off and haven't seen him since.
But he posed so nicely for me with these dried leaves, which seem to go so well with the colour of his beautiful smooth feathers, which is a lovely feature of these waxwings. He chose the only branch with dried leaves like this, in the garden, far as I know! Note his claws on the one small twig, close to his body.
