Sometimes the white wing patches are the first thing you notice when you spy a Bohemian Waxwing. That's why my heart skipped a beat when I saw a strange waxwing in my yard in western Crook County. However, when I got glass on the bird, it appeared to have white in the wings but all the other field marks (white undertail coverts, yellow underparts, white on forehead, brownish instead of gray...) seemed to line up with Cedar Waxwing. I thought some might be interested in commenting on the white in the wing and whether this is "normal".
