Etsy Lunch Hour: Cedar Waxwing

Cedar Waxwing in Snow greeting card by scramp22

i was sitting in my sun porch this weekend which over looks my muscadine vines when i noticed there were tons of birds jumping around the branches and eating the berries. i grabbed my binoculars (strategically placed for bird watching) and saw the most beautiful birds that i have ever seen....cedar waxwings. i grabbed my laptop and searched for "red tip wing" birds. they have the sweetest little red tipped wings and yellow tipped tails with a head much like a cardinal except they are more brown with adults having pale yellow bellies. they are now my favorite birds. i read that when they are courting each other they push little gifts back and forth like berries and bugs. sigh. how cute is that?! check out these etsy artists that also love the sweet cedar waxwings.
