Comments

Mixed flock of Cedar and Bohemian Waxwings, with American Crow in background. Heavy traffic noise removed. Moments after recording, flock lifted and flew off over field northeast of us.

Observation details

At least one definitive male, with bright yellow edges to several primaries, a well-defined black mask, several red waxy tips to inner secondaries, and a very thick yellow terminal band. By contrast, the bird behind him had a less-defined mask, no waxy tips, little yellow edging to primaries, and significantly less yellow on terminal band - perhaps formative? Both of these birds did a good stretch one after the other, displaying all of these features very nicely. Interesting to note size comparison!
