Cedar Waxwing by catwhiskers

Cedar Waxwing

I have been trying to get a shot of one of these for about 4 years! They only come in our area when the berries are ripe and do not stay very long!

I was just walking around a local campground when I spotted a flock of about 50!

I have a small telephoto lens, so I have never be able to get anything good. Today, I found a cooperative flock that let me get close.

Not the best shot, but I will take it!

Not what I set out to photograph today.... I wanted to do a blurish shot.... maybe tomorrow
Perfect capture. Beautiful
