Cedar Waxwing

The colors are a little dull because of the humidity and lighting, but you can make out the crest, the eye stripe, the yellowish cast to the underside, and the buff-brown back of this super cool bird. I wish you could see the "wax" tips on the wings in this photo - they really do look like they've got tiny beads of red wax on them.

Spotted 6/9/12 in the field by the Carpenters' house.

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to comment - I love hearing from you. If you can help me out with identifying any of these mystery birds or correct any mistakes I've made in identifying the others, I would so appreciate it! Happy Birding!
