Cedar Waxwing Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Who doesn't love Cedar Waxwings? They're so elegant looking and unique, and also so unpredictable. You never go out expecting to find a Cedar Wasxwing, given their nomadic nature, and when you do, it's always a treat. My favorite photo is the one below from Ecola State Park in Oregon, with a great perch and a tuft of mossy vegetation on the branch, a nice clean background, and a great look at the "waxy" wing tips and tail band.
