January's Bird-of-the-Month at
was Waxwings... Unfortunately it took me almost the entire month to finish this painting (even though the actual work only took a matter of hours - I just didn't find the time/energy to work on it)!
Here we have the three species of Bombycilla
, top to bottom: B. cedrorum
and B. japonica
(That's Cedar, Bohemian, and Japanese Waxwings to give the common English names)
I really love Waxwings! I haven't seen B. japonica
in the wild yet, but maybe someday soon!
