This Cedar Waxwing was brought in by kind people Friday night after they saw it struggling to fly on the road. It has a shoulder injury, but should heal and be able to be released. This is a common bird, but not seen at bird feeders because it eats berries and insects. They have a mask, bright red "wax" on their wing tips and a bright yellow tipped tail...gorgeous!
