Cedar Waxwings, Bombycilla cedrorum, are migratory birds that breed in Canada and the northern half of the United States. We see them here in the southern US only in the Winter. Their name comes from their fondness for cedar berries. To attract them to your yard, plant native fruit-bearing trees such as dogwood, serviceberry, juniper, cedar, hawthorn, and winterberry. During the Summer breeding season they supplement their fruit diet with flying insects. All About Birds: Cedar Waxwings website

Have a wonderful day!

  2. I’ve only ever seen one but it was a beauty. Great photo!

  3. They always seem to be formal birds to me. There is something about their colors that gives me that feeling.
