Cedar Waxwing
Bombycilla cedrorum
November 25, 2007
These beautiful birds can be enjoyed only in the late fall and winter in east TN. They are fruit and berry eaters, they are often seen in flocks visiting cedar, holly, and other berry producing bushes and trees. I quickly snapped this photo along a trail at Haw Ridge. The birds get their common name from the small red waxy tips on their wings.
