My first "clear" pic of this amazing bird. Sitting in my daughter's back yard in Canada a flock flew in.

Here are some more pics captured on this amazing trek in Canada A Visitation

Cedar Waxwings are social birds that youre likely to see in flocks year-round. They sit in fruiting trees swallowing berries whole, or pluck them in mid-air with a brief fluttering hover. They also course over water for insects. Look for Cedar Waxwings in woodlands of all kinds, and at farms, orchards, and suburban gardens where there are fruiting trees or shrubs.

I don't know why can't change the country to upload so will choose the closest city where this was taken. Must be a glitch in the new formatting. Country is fixed to US however this pic was taken in Ontario

Hello Ishi,

Beautiful capture with delicate hues. Thanks for sharing this beautiful specimen of Bombycilla cedrorum; Brenda.

A big hug from ARGENTINA.

If you choose, right at the start, "country" and click on Canada you can then select the city you wish.
THERE IS NO GLITCH of any sort!!!
The cedar wax wing is a friendly bird; and that's the reason you got so close to it.
Mario with best regards from Calgary, Alberta.

Great shot Brenda!!
Looks like you were right on top of this little beauty. What I really like about these unique birds is their plumage seems to fit them like a seal skin. They don't have a feather out of place and they are just so cute with their black bandit-like masks.
Rosie and I will be heading to Nicaragua in a few hours for a weeks vacation to see my daughter Traci, who is a missionary serving there. I believe our first stop-over is in Miami.
