Cedar Waxwing

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Cedar Waxwing
Cedar Waxwing

I check this stand of cherry trees every fall for the annual visit of the Cedar Waxwings. These beautiful birds are almost exclusively fructivorous (fruit eaters). They are very colorful, including small red tips on some wing feathers (barely visible here), which looked to some like red sealing wax - hence the "waxwing" name.

This is fantastic, Wally. Maybe when I grow up I can take nature shots this gorgeous. What super detail and wonderful colors.
Actually I am already grown up and heading over the hill. :)
