Nanny's Cedar Waxwing by mybirdy Nanny's Cedar Waxwing by mybirdy
Another Christmas present! I was very busy this holiday.. oi.
This was for my Nanny! Whom I love more than anything.
Cedar Waxwings are her favorite.. AND, he is sitting on an Althea Plant (or bush, whatever you want to call it). Althea is my grandmother's name and that's where my middle name came from.. the end! Great story right? ya.

I love Cedar Waxwings. I love how their tails looks like they've been dipped in paint.

How beautful! I was just telling my godmother about waxwings today, she has them in her garden and I pointed out how you recognize them by their crest and yellow tail, and if you're lucky you can catch the red tips on their wings. Waxwings are among my favorite birds, this is lovely!

during the winter, i was coming back from school, and when i was walking down the path, i found one of these pretty birds grounded. i think one of the wings were strained or something, but it just wouldn't fly. the small creature would often flutter its wings and it scrabbled pretty fast away when i tried to take hold of it so i can bring it to animal control for help.

so i put on a glove, a pretty thick leather glove, as i tried to gently hold it, it kept squabbling away. my pants ended up wet because of the deep snow. and i had to put the little bird in a box, after i captured the flustered bird. it never stopped biting me.

Cedar Waxwings are one of my favorite birds. The first time I saw one was when an enormous flock of them landed on my Dad's bradford pear tree to eat all the fruit on it. Lovely work!

I love them too, but I've never seen one in real life v_v which makes me sad.

That's a shame. They're not too common, I've only seen them twice, including that big flock in my Dad's tree. Pretty birds though.
