Very similar to the Bohemian Waxwing but the greatest difference for easy identification is that Cedars have yellow under the tail and Bohemian have cinnamon brown under their tail. There are also colouration differences.

    One of my favorite birds – well, one among many. They come through in the spring (& some are summer residents) heading for Muskoka & other points north. A great catch of this gorgeous creature!
