Cedar waxwing are a fairly common bird in Eastern North America. They are found mostly in the country, high up in trees. I have been observing and photographing these birds for several years. They have a tan, yellowish sometimes pink colour and a patch of yellow and pink on their wing. Because their colour is so neutral depending on the light they can look more green, or pink. My best pictures of this bird were in June 2015 when I observed a pair in a dead tree. They stayed there for several minutes and I got many shots. I also got a shot of a cedar waxwing with a Redwinged Blackbird in 2016. Most of my experiences with photographing these birds have been in the months of June, and July.

I don’t think I ever saw these birds around my area. Nice pictures!
Lovely pictures! We get waxwings here, in February/March.
We get a different type of Waxwing in the winter here too, Bohemian Waxwing. In the summer it is Cedar Waxwing.
Esp like 3rd pic from the top (hope I got that right!) – love the colorfulness and cheerfulness of it, Shawn! 🙂
