Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1127)
Canada (Ontario) Algonquin Park - I went all the way to Algonquin to get a picture of a waxwing Well the bird did look pretty nice. At this time of year you seldom see any of the local specialty birds like Canada Jays and Black-backed Woodpeckers.

This was a question of watching and waiting. The birds had been landing in a dead tree then moving off to feed so we just waited for some to return. It only took about 15 minutes before we had luck with a couple of them.

The nice thing about this setting is we had the time to position ourselves for the best light.

It was good of the bird to show all of the field marks we look for. This individual had the required 'wax droplets' on the wing as well which is nice.

I couldn't pass up this opportunity even with a common bird but the clean perch with a clear blue sky sets this bird off beautifully.
