I’m not sure how common or rare the Cedar Waxwing is here in Pennsylvania. All I can tell you is that for the past 51 years of my life, I’ve never encountered a single one! Until now!
I was out and about in early June (2022) at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Tinicum, Pennsylvania. I decided to take a walk around a particular loop that I haven’t explored before. And wouldn’t you know it: once again I find myself in one of these once-in-a-lifetime moments and experiences where fate is pulling me along on strings. This time it was finding the above pictured lone Cedar Waxwing in a bare tree just waiting for me to photograph it. So I did! Who am I to question the universe!? After taking several photos, I then meandered on my way. I just hope this isn’t the first and last time I ever see one again…
