Congratulations to our BirdSpotter People’s Choice winner, Laura Frazier of West Virginia, for this eye-catching photo of a Cedar Waxwing! Laura says:
I took this photo at an apple orchard in Orrtanna, Pennsylvania. It was the first week of Spring, and a friend had told me there were lots of Waxwings feeding on the Crabapple trees there. I couldn’t resist going to take some photos of them as they are such beautiful birds that I don’t get to see very often. The Waxwings were so busy feeding that they didn’t even notice me there, so I was able to take lots of photos. This photo is my favorite from that day. I like the bird’s pose as it stretches to reach a crabapple above its head even though there are some right at its feet.
