I spent the evening at our local estuary looking for something to shoot, but got nothing, until I was about to turn back home. Suddenly two Cedar Waxwings appeared at pretty much focus limit of the 300 with a TC20EII on. Unfortunately a branch was in the way, but I got away ONE shot before they flew away....

Beautiful shot Andreas. These little guys typically can be seen in fairly dense foliage, so it's very difficult to get a clean shot. Everyone that I've gotten has either a branch or shadow in the frame.

Look at the little guy! How cute! His feathers are perfect. I love cedar waxwings! Love the colors, love the white under-carriage, love the yellow tip on the tail, love the black beak and black mask, love the tuft of feathers on top of their heads. He's like a little shrike on LSD.

Thanks for posting him. Don't see many of them down here.

Thanks Louis!!! As sid I have better but not as close...
Very nice shot Andreas. I would have to agree with what Frank has said, of the few shots I have of this bird, they all include some unwanted branches.

They like berries on bushes so this one was sitting in a wild cherry tree, they move around so one has to be quick while they are at the spot...
Nice work! I have nothing of this bird that I would show anyone.:redface:
Well you know where I live, I think the 300 with a TC17 is a good choice...
Good shot Andreas. I'll have to come down to Cow Bay and try my luck...
Yes they are one of the coolest birds I know as well. just lov'em...
