Bird Week IV Cedar Waxwing / by Dave Hileman

This shot was taken in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the southeastern corner where the elk herds are being restored to  the area. We were watching elk that afternoon and then took a short walk along a stream. I saw several of these birds, they usually flock together, eating berries. They would then fly over to this tree and rest and then back to the berry tree. I think this is the best songbird photo I have taken and of one of my favorite birds to watch. Cedar Waxwings have great color.  It is with the Fuji X-T2 and the 100-400 zoom at about 310.
