Cedar Waxwings

I was working from home today and went out at lunch to sit and enjoy the weather. I looked at the huge tree across the street and noticed a few birds and I couldn’t determine what type they were. So I went in and grab my camera and to my surprise, it was a bunch of Cedar Waxwings. I have never seen any Waxwings before near my house. And there wasn’t just 1 or 2, there had to be about 10 of them.

As I was photographing the Waxwings, I heard some screeching and looked up and saw these hawks, circling low in the sky. Upon reviewing my photos, it looked like an adult and juvenile.
