Cedar Waxwing

I saw my first Cedar Waxwing this afternoon. What a beautiful bird! Rocket and I were romping in the backyard when I spotted the bird sipping from a water puddle just three feet away. It seemed quite trusting and lingered on a branch above me for a bit. I went inside for the camera but couldn’t capture it on film before it flew away.

Waxwings travel in large flocks in search of berries. There must be berries somewhere because I think our trees are full of these birds right now. Maybe I can get a picture before they’re gone.

Update: I wasn’t able to get a pic, sadly enough. The one in this post is from Ken Thomas, courtesy of Wikipedia..Thanks for sharing, Ken!

    Wow! I have never seen one in person. My partner at work tells me that he has seen them in quantity hanging around holly bushes that we walk by every day. But, this year they have been absent :-(
