When I moved to Eugene, Oregon, to go to college, I ran across a new bird that I had never seen before. Cedar Waxwings, which I thought to be one of the most beautiful birds I had ever seen. Cedar Waxwings came and went thru my aging to adulthood, but they never failed to impress me. Once we moved to the arid desert of La Paz, Mexico, these wonderful birds were no more. On my recent trip to Seattle to visit with my ailing mother-in-law, if found a small group, all be it, a shy group, of Cedar Waxwings. I was hand holding my camera, so the images were quite difficult to get, and they did not venture out of the brush much but I did manage to get a couple nice shots!
