A group of Cedar Waxwings visited the backyard a few days ago. I was able to get nice shots that highlight the “red wax” tips on the wing feathers.
I’m always happy when I can get a view of the bird’s claws clutching the branches in the trees as he observes his surroundings.
The Cedar Waxwing is named for these red tip “wax-like” highlights seen in these photos.
