Cedar Waxwing Fledgling



A newly fledged Cedar Waxwing waits patiently on a branch to be fed in the Great Smoky Mountains. Hiding deep inside a locust tree I was lucky to get this video using manual focus after hearing the young bird. You can just see the yellow at the end of the tail feathers and the trademark eye mask is very evident. Keeping well-hidden increased the chances that the young one will survive.
