While photographing warblers from the kayak the other day, I was quite surprised to have a Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) fly into a dead tree about 100-feet, or so away from me. I have never seen a Cedar Waxwing in my area before, although I have seen groups of them at a NWR located about 125 miles north of me. But this appeared to be a single bird visiting the area. I grabbed a few quick shots, before the waxwing decided to move on. Hoping they are adding my local area to their itinerary and I’ll see more in the next few days!
