Cedar Waxwing

If you heard a loud squeal of delight the other day it might have been me when an “ear-full” of Cedar Waxwings made an appearance in my backyard.  I was thrilled to be able to snap a few pictures of them.

These birds are breathtaking!  With their bronzed backs, their black masks, and their beautifully tipped feathers, these elegant bandits typically don’t freqent backyard feeders.  Instead, they prefer to rob the berries from your bushes.  They are, however, drawn to the sound of running water and will seek refreshment from birdbaths and fountains.

Aren’t they just gorgeous?
