NOTES ON THE CEDAR WAXWING (Bombycilla cedrorum)

Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) Science Article 3

abstract

As is well known, this species belongs to a group which has been a puzzle not only to systematists, but also to ornithologists at large. The three known species of Waxwings, distributed as they are over a wide section of the world, one, the Cedar Waxwing, peculiar to temperate North America, the Bohemian occurring both here and in Europe, and the Japanese inhabiting Japan and, somewhat sparingly, eastern Asia, would appear to indicate that they may be remnants of a larger group.
