Cedar Waxwing

June 14, 2012 in Nearby Landbirds

This Cedar Waxwing was discovered as a total surprise while driving south on Rt 114 in Lawrence on the bridge over the Merrimack while entering South Lawrence.  A short glace to the left before the stoplight, at an apple tree, showed a bird that caught my attention.  WOW, a Cedar Waxwing!  Waxwings that breed here arrive in late May or early June.  Waxwings are known to be late nesters, often not beginning to nest until midsummer!
