Found along forest edge or in open woodland habitats; in migration and winter, frequently found near concentrations of fruit-bearing trees or shrubs. 


The beauty of the Cedar Waxwing is unmistakable; note the yellowish belly, white undertail coverts, and conspicuous crest. 


Eats fruits and berries, but also insects taken in flight or gleaned from vegetation.
