Two visitors to our birdbath about noon Aug 8th were Cedar Waxwings.
What was unusual was that one sat in the water and did the "feed me feed
me" posture, addressing another on the rim. The begging bird had
juvenile coloration on chest and the adult red blaze on secondary
feathers! Is this a normal thing for a juvenile transitioning that far
into adulthood to still be begging food? (Port Townsend, WA, up on
Castle Hill area)
