Ampelis cedrorum
cedar waxwing ce"dar wax"wing, n. (Zo["o]l.) a species of chatterer ({Bombycilla cedrorum}, formerly {Ampelis cedrorum}) widely distributed over temperate North America, so named from its frequenting cedar trees; -- called also {cedar bird}, {cherry bird}, {Canada robin}, and {American waxwing}. It is a brownish bird about 7 inches long, between the size of a robin and a sparrow, has a crest on the head, a black face mask, and a yellow-tipped tail. The name comes from the black color of the tips of the wings, like that of a black sealing wax. They sometimes are seen in flocks. [1913 Webster + WordNet 1.5]
