Cedar Waxwing Lingers On #Birds

We hadn’t seen Cedar Waxwings around our neighborhood for about a week.    In the past they’ve passed through, hanging around for a week or so, and then disappearing until next year.  They’ve been party (along with many other species of birds) to consuming the berries on our Bradford pears, and since these berries appear to be gone now, I thought the Cedar Waxwings were gone for the winter as well.  However, while trying to photograph a pair of Red-wing Blackbirds that I had spotted earlier, I happened across this (unusually) lone cedar waxwing in some underbrush in our vacant lot next door.
