Spotted it at the top of a bare deciduous tree. First spotted the fat body with a little mohawk. Then the yellow strip on the bottom of the tail. Then the wax wing tips. Cool bird to see.
There is a flock of 20 to 40 Cedar Waxwings at River Pond State Park this summer.
The waxwings form the genus Bombycilla of passerine birds. According to most authorities, this is the only genus placed in the family Bombycillidae although Phainoptila is sometimes included.
