Japanese Waxwing

December 8th 2010.

A Japanese Waxwing, part of a small flock in the park near my apartment 2 years ago today. This is usually the scarcer of the 2 waxwing species found in Japan but 2 winters ago there were lots of both species in town. They generally arrive in mid to late January so this group was rather early...............

Thanks for clicking this link.......

  1. Stunning bird. We've had a lot of Waxwings this year - no pics for me though :(

  2. Excellent photograph. I've still just ever seen one waxwing back in 2009 and it was a Bohemian. Wonder why you had lots of both kinds then and not now?

  3. Thanks for the comments.

    Russell-both waxwing species are very unpredictable. Some winters we only get one type, other winters we get mainly one type with a few of the other, some winters we fet lots of both species whilst some winers (like last winter) we don't get any of either species.
