Cedar waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum) are smaller and more brown than their close relative, the Bohemian Waxwing (which breeds farther to the north and west). During courtship the male and female will sit together and pass small objects back and forth, such as flower petals or an insect. Mating pairs will sometimes rub their beaks together affectionately. Calcite Cliffs, Yellowstone.
