Bohemian Waxwing
Bombycilla garrulus

This is the fourth time I have observed this species, but the first time I was able to get a photo. The bird was actually feeding on mountain ash berries from the sidewalk. As I rode towards it, it flew up into the tree. I felt a little conspicuous along the busy street climbing up on a railing to take pictures, but I persevered to get these.

Location: Halibut Point Road, Sitka, Alaska
