Cedar Waxwing in flight

Cedar Waxwing are colorful birds common throughout much of North America. They are very fast in flight so I was simply getting photos of them in flight hoping for some good compositions. This photo highlights the colorful yellow tips of the tail feathers while showing the striking details of the face.
