I saw and heard several chickadees while I was out in Yesler today, however I could only make a brief sketch of one. A black head with a white strip under the eye was the give away, that and it's song.

Description

Cedar Waxwing were present making high-pitched calls in the upper canopy of the cottonwoods near my spot off the boardwalk. I noticed they were orange, but had a long tail with bright colors on the end. A worker at the Horticulture center confirmed what I saw as a Cedar Waxwing. Couldn't get a photo, as camera doesn't zoom (unlike my binoculars).
