WI Cedar Waxwing

The Cedar Waxwing is prevalent in Wisconsin year-round.  They feed on berries as pictured as well as on cedar cones which are roughly the same size.  When these food sources are not available they will seek out insects.  Their name is derived from the cedar food source and the red, wax-like wing tips.  Both male and female look alike.
