It's been a busy couple of days, but here are a few pictures of Cedar Waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum) from our yard in the late afternoon today (13 December 2017).
A close-up of the red wax-like droplets at the tips of the secondary feathers:
And one image of the flock just after it took off. When they're feeding, sometimes it's hard to see (or hear) how many waxwings are in the tree. I'm almost always surprised by how many birds there actually are. How many do you see in the photo below? (All of the birds in the photo are waxwings.)
[I counted 46 waxwings.]
