Masked Bandit Elegance - Cedar Waxwing

I think of Cedar Waxwings as the masked bandits of the bird world. They also have a type of simple elegance to them ~ reminding me of Audrey Hepburn, who is one of my favorite actresses. She is also has wonderful quotes!

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.

lovely photo, I love waxwings, we've got loads in Edinburgh at the moment (a different species though). It is amazing to be surrounded by waxwings fluttering between trees.

Nice quote too by the way. I've never thought of waxwings as like Audrey Hepburn, but now I will!

Nice photo, Kerri! I like it when the cedar waxwings visit my crab apple trees. AH, but the most of the crab apples are now eaten.

Hi Kerri,
It was a delight finding your comment on my new little Grandson.
I've been away and haven't visited. Your images as I've scrolled down are as wonderful as ever. Loved what you said about butterflies.
Sending prayers for a complete recovery from your surgery.
Hugs,
Carletta
