I have never seen a Cedar Waxwing in my yard. Also rare, I think, for one to be alone although others may have been nearby.

Very very nice pics Rog, congrats on a new bird to your yard. Always fun. I've only seen one this year too!

Judging from the beak contents in the 2nd shot, it is possible there's a nest nearby?

From an old yard bird, right Al ?;-)a Just kidding, my friend, many thanks.

Thanks, Jack. He was picking at webs in the tree; thought he was grabbing spiders. But your idea might have merit. That would be great.

I have noticed that, around here, they don't form large flocks until end of summer. Right now, mating and nesting goes on and they tend to separate. Saw a pair in the grass, eating seed heads the other day.

Thank you, Nancy, appreciated. Good to know. Maybe I'll have a CW family later this summer.:-)

Very nice. I always thought the Waxwing was a very cool looking bird, but I've never seen one in person.


If you want my expert opinion ask me about synthesizers. If you want my professional opinion ask me about computers. If you want an amateurish but enthusiastic opinion ask me about cameras.

Thanks, Rabid. At times, they almost look like they have skin rather than feathers.
