Stalking finally pays off!! The Cedar Waxwing is common to most of the northeastern states, and lives in Ohio year around. It is a close cousin to the Bohemian waxwing (which is slightly larger and greyer in color) that those of you in the northwest and north central states see. They can both be found in some states. That said, I had never seen one until this spring. I'm sure they've been here, I just had never noticed them. I'm finding that's the case a lot with these bird pages. I was just not very observant. But the waxwings are beautiful, if shy. They love tall pines and trees with fruit or berries, which made tracking one down entertaining......
