Bombycillidae by twapa Bombycillidae by twapa
January's Bird-of-the-Month at :iconbirds-club: 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
B. garrulus

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!

Watercolor, 2012.

Artwork (C) Gloria Pike
