The Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) is a member of the family Bombycillidae or waxwing family of passerine birds. It breeds in open wooded areas in North America, principally southern Canada and the northern United States. ref: Wikipedia.

Cedar Waxwings back to back like little soldiers garding the fort. Captured in my front yard.
