I have been trying to find a cooperative Cedar Waxwing to photograph for several years. They have amazing colors and an almost sinister looking black mask. In the past, when I have found Cedar Waxwings they were always too high up in the trees to get a good photo.
So a few weeks ago, I was happy to find a flock almost at eye level in trees filled with berries on the old Lake Ballinger Golf Course (now Ballinger Park) in Mountlake Terrace, Washington. This photo from that shoot was recently published in the Seattle Times newspaper as their Reader’s Lens photo of the week.
