There were at least thirty of these Cedar Waxwings in one of our Bradford Pear trees a few days ago on the first day of Winter. For a short time, that is, as they were gone in just a few minutes.  I didn't see them at all the rest of the day.  It was fortunate that they chose my place to rest and that I was outside with the camera while they were passing through.  Also, I hope they made it through OK, because it was over 70 degrees and there was a very windy storm front with tornado potential just to their west.

What a wonderful shot. I wish they would come around here even for a stopover.

So happy that you were there with your camera! They are beautiful. I never see them here.

Love these birds. Can't wait until ours come back...probably Feb or March. Lucky you got a nice shot from their brief stay. Way to stay ready, Amy!

I LOVE those birds. In the spring, on their way through, they stop in and devour any cranberries that are remaining on the bush outside our window. :-)

Probably my favorite bird. They come through here in February and in a day or two have stripped all the berries from our huge red-tipped photinia bushes.
