Birds - Cedar Waxwing
Class:Aves Order:Passeriformes Family:Bombycillidae


Cedar Waxwing, Bombycilla cedrorum. This brown, yellow and gray colored bird has wings that look like they were dipped in red wax and is found over most of North America. They eat fruit, insects and some seeds. They have shorter, square tipped tails and live in wooded areas. I've always wanted to see this bird. Unfortunately they were in the top of a tall tree when I think I saw my first batch at Mill Creek Streamway Park. I could only see their bellies but those yellow tipped tails were a pretty clear give away. The second batch were taken at Smithville Lake in January. Found another batch in Leawood in late November.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
