These two are elegant, sleek as silk, and masked. I love them, red berries and foliage, to dress the photo.

Thank you for sharing.

What beautiful birds, great shot.

The cedar waxwings visit here in late winter and within a couple of days can strip all the berries off a bush that is about 10 feet tall, 20 feet long and 6 feet wide. I've heard they can actually get drunk eating berries. They are so beautiful, I can't wait for them to come again!

these birds are almost too beautiful to be true...

Valerie said...

Extraordinary birds, Kerri - they almost appear to have been painted on, there being no obvious sign of their feathers!

Tammy said...

Perfection x2. These guys are elusive to me which make a shot like this so special.

Ellie said...

Oh those two are beautiful and look great against those red berries.

Kerri, i see straight away why they're called "waxwings".
Love that tree too, with all the berries, must be a feast to those Cedar Waxwings!

Fantastic shot!

This is lovely. As it happens, one of my fave photos of my husband's is a cedar waxwing. Just entered it in Cornell Lab's ecard contest. Fingers crossed!

Here in the Smokies of NC, they came two years in a row to strip the dogwoods. I was awed! They DO look like wax, as Happyone:-) said. I'd never thought of that. That was four years ago, and I haven't seen them since.

Your photos of them are unbelievably awesome. To me, they are magic. BTW, what kind of tree is that?

Cedar Waxwings are some very lovely birds. They also like to sit still a bit longer then most so that a decent photo can be easier to get! =)
Cheers!
