This is the first time I've ever seen these birds in my yard and I've lived here for six years. This is a Cedar Waxwing and there were probably 10 or more hanging out on this tree. :) I was very excited because I had seen photos of them here on flickr and think they are beautiful. I had my lens extended to the max; wish this could've been a better shot! I was afraid they would be gone by the time I set my tripod up so I stuck w/the old handheld shot.
