Just in case....

With a cedar waxwing reported in Ireland this morning it's worth keeping an eye out during this waxwing invasion just in case a cedar pops up in our area. I was lucky enough to see the cedar waxwing in Nottingham some years ago and for me the 3 easiest ways of separating it from Bohemian was its smaller size, lack of any white/yellow in the wing and the plain undertail compared to Bohemians rich buffy brown. The Irish bird also ponders the question whether we are now also seeing some north American bohemians in Britain. Here's a pic of the Nottingham cedar:
