Default Cedar Wax Wings

A pair of cedar wax wings came to visit the crab apple tree this morning. Odd as usually these birds travel in flocks.

I think this is either a female or a juvenile

Thanks, the cedar waxwings love these crab apples so it helps to attract them which makes it easier for me to get these shots. Some years we have had flocks of a dozen or more in the tree at 1 time. That is why it is on usual to just see 1 pair.
They are a cool bird, I have nick named them the Apple bandits for their masks.
