Came across a couple of Cedar Waxwings today. This one bird was a hoot. Gave me some good poses. A couple where he or she has the Don King hairdo working...cheers...Don

I never see any Cedar Waxwings around here, but when I was in Canada they were everywhere. Nice shots, the hair do is great, gives the bird character.

Love the 1st two shots! I took these shots of a baby Cedar Waxwing in my front yard last Saturday.

Love the first two. He looks like a surfer dude - spike hairdo and sunglasses. All he needs isa skateboard or long board and he'd fit right in. I've never seen one around here, though.

Thanks Tom. There are a lot of them about up here. Tough to spot though, as they like hiding up in leafy trees...cheers....Don
