[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Easily identifiable by the black mask, Cedar Waxwings are found throughout North America. Medium sized and sleek looking, waxwings gather in large flocks in the autumn to eat berries.

They are found in mixed habitats including woodlots, orchards, parks and suburban backyards and gardens.

Unfortunately in this picture I did not get the bright yellow tail tip, hopefully next time!

Hello Peter,
Awesome capture of this gorgeous Cedar waxwing. This bird has eluded my camera so far, but hopefully one day I'll be able to capture an image as beautiful as yours.
Superb detail and stunning natural coloration. The little berry is an added bonus to this fine shot. Great work!!
