Cedar Waxwing

I saw my first cedar waxwing in the Texas Panhandle almost two years ago and blogged on it here. Late last November I saw several at Big Morongo Canyon (see below)

and last Saturday I saw scores of them at the Irvine Ranch Water District San Joaquin Wetlands (see below). The one I saw in the Texas Panhandle appeared larger and beefier. The ones I'm seeing in California seem much skinnier and longer.
