Cedar Waxwings

Cedar Waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum) live in Michigan year-round, with both migratory and resident populations, but I don't see them as often as I would like. Their elegant gray plumage brightened by red wingtips and yellow-tipped tailfeathers is very attractive. A flock of them enlivened Kalamazoo College's campus this week.

University of Michigan has more information on cedar waxwings.
