Cedar Waxwings visit Port Townsend, WA every spring but just for a couple of weeks. They fill up on holly berries before the head north. Beautiful birds, they remind me of a larger version of a cardinal. The have grey feathers with pretty yellow bellies and yellow on the tips of their feathers, they also have feather that form a top knot on their heads. Fun to see every year as they stop for a quick visit.
