The Cedar Waxwing is a beautiful bird that can be found throughout much of the U.S. and Southeast. Extreme southern Florida is the only area of the southeast where they are not found.

In the winter flocks of Cedar waxwings can frequently be seen descending on Holly and other berry bearing trees and stripping the trees of their berries.

During the spring and summer Cedar waxwings can frequently be found above streams and rivers where they wait to catch mayflies and other water born insects as they hatch and rise from the water. Specific creeks where this can be seen include the Little River in Townsend Tennessee, Burgess Falls State Natural Area in Tennessee, and the Nantahala River in North Carolina.
