Always a learning experience from your blog. I've never seen this bird. Thanks to your shots, I get to see the brightly colored, barely there wing tips!

i just love their soft coloration! such sweet birds. i only see them on gray, wintry days (if i'm lucky) as they migrate thru in clusters.

Gail Dixon said...

One of my favorite birds! Well done, Brian. You captured those silky feathers and colorful wing tips so well.

LOVE these shots, Brian. They're such fun birds. I've had them in my yard too. They love the sprinkler.

Gorgeous birds, fabulous photos. Cedar waxwings are on my life list. I saw them when I was a child, but that doesn't count ;)

I absolutely love cedar waxwings. They're the bird that first really interested me in birding (made me buy books and do research etc...). They flew into our yard (back when we still had our Oregon house) and we spotted them feeding each other holly berries ... we spent hours watching them in absolute awe.

Beautiful pictures. thank you.

Aren't they gorgeous. I LOVE the yellow waxy looking tail. Pretty images Brian. And LOVE the 'banditos' or bandidos as you spell it.

Gunilla B├Ąck said...

Awesome shots! I love the title.

Kerri Farley said...

Oh these are SUPER!

Felicia said...

handsome fellow.

Andrea Priebe said...

These are wonderful pictures, Brian. Do you ever wonder why the poeple who named them ignored the "bandit" look. That is such a prominent feature and yet ... no mention of it, hmmmm. But by any name, they are gorgeous and I love that they are so social amongst themselves. Great post, as always.
