From a dusty crinkled old photo to the most beautiful professionally framed portrait, every

photograph has a story. These images are considered to be some of our most valuable treasures

and to us, they are “never just a photograph”.

Cedar Waxwing



The Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla Cedrorum) is a medium sized North American bird.

This pretty bird has a black face-mask with white trim, a tan colored body, pale yellow belly, gray tail with bright yellow tips, and a hard to see red waxy-tipped feathers on their wings.  They measure about seven inches long.



After enjoying the taste of the sweet grapes at Sweet Cheeks Winery,
it was time for a dip in the fountain as a yellow finch watches all the excitement.




 
Time for a drink of water.


 


These birds primarily consume fresh berries and other fruits that are high in sugar content, but will also eat flowers and insects.  They can be seen year-round, usually where there is an abundance of fresh fruit.
