Cedar Waxwing

We saw this pair of Cedar Waxwings (actually there were four in total but the other two were camera shy and hid behind leaves) at the Lake Katherine Nature Preserve. Their markings are so interesting.

My favorite is the bottom one: The female seems to be considering whether or not it is worth the effort to move down the branch to munch on the leaves.

  1. My absolute favorite birds. Gorgeous olive/gray plumage appears almost suede-like. They make a wonderful whizzing "zeeee-zeee" sound when they swoop around in their little posses. Beautiful shots.
