20100212 302, 488 Cedar & Bohemian Waxwings SERIES.jpg


Three images.

Top Image: Front view of Cedar(left) and Bohemian(right)Waxwings. Note, the white undertail coverts of the Cedar compared to the cinnamon of the Bohemian.Also note, the light yellow underbelly of the Cedar. The Bohemians also have cinnamon markings at the base of the beak. Both have a black chin and a narrow black mask above the beak.

Note, both often pick up berries by the tip of the beak, as shown, then toss them up for a better grip or to swallow them.

Side View, Cedar Waxwing.

Side View, Bohemian Waxwing.
