Yes it is pretty wild down there. I was there a week and saw 230 species, much more than I have seen in the 28 months I have been in Michigan. My parents moved down there 7 years ago from WA State.

Always have a large group of these hang out in my crab apple tree in December when they come through the Wenas valley.  Neat birds

That would be the Cedar Waxwing - they are really cool.
In the pic you can barely make out a small piece of red, next to the white on it's back.
That's the waxwing part of this bird. It's not really a feather, I'm not sure what it is called. It almost seems synthetic, or waxy.

One of my favorites for sure.  I think this is the Bohemian waxwing.  Mostly similar, little bigger.
