About This Image
believe this is a male Cedar Waxwing. Spotted this while at the Heron nesting area last evening, -it was gathering berries, probably for its youngsters.
Realize since seeing this one, that I've only ever seen the female waxwings before, as have never seen one with these colours.
It was quite timid, so was lucky to get any shots of it. Of course, I wish it had been more visible, but wanted to ID the bird, so couldn't be choosy as to where it landed.
Have been waiting for these to visit our garden, as they seem to pass thru once each summer. But now that I've seen where they nest, I don't expect to see any on our patio, as there's fresh water where they are now. Am still hoping tho' : ) esp after seeing this very pretty male.
