Hi All--

Erika and I banded 22 Cedar Waxwings all caught at the same time in
Northfield today, 13 October 2009.  One was interesting: it had a tricolored
tail!  Its right outer tail feather tip was white.  The central feathers
where yellow-tipped.  the left two outer feathers were orange-tipped.

I have read about orange-tipped waxwing feathers before.  See, for example:

I have never heard of tricolored tail tips.  Here is a photo of our bird:
