Cedar waxwings greeting the early morning sun

What a treat to see in the morning!

Early in the morning I heard the cedar waxwings singing high up in the redwood tree.

Usually I just hear them but can't see them when they are on top of the tree.

But now a large group of them, at least twenty birds, were perched a little lower, facing southeast.

They seemed to be enjoying the first rays of the sun.

Some of the birds were preening their feathers, as if preparing for the day.

I think they are such beautiful birds, with their black masks, prominent crests, peach colored chests and pale yellow bellies.

And look at the bright yellow tail feathers.

I know they are monitoring the ivy berries down below.
