Bohemian Waxwing on Crescent Valley Drive

I visited a good friend today at his home on Crescent Valley drive. He has an amazing garden that happend to be loaded with Bohemian Waxwing's. The Bohemian Waxwing is larger and greyer than the Cedar Waxwing and has bright yellow tips on its tail feathers and a yellow or white stripe along the wing feathers. Both beak and feet are dark and the brown eyes are set in a narrow black mask underlined with white. In other words.....very cool bird...
