Bohemian Waxwing in Russia

A Bohemian Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus) is perfectly pictured eating rowan-berries in Pylos, Russia.   Pylos is a small town on the right bank of the Volga River, 300 kilometres north-east of Moscow.   Bohemian Waxwings are found in coniferous forests across North America (coast-to-coast in Canada) and Eurasia.   They are prolific and have very large breeding areas, and their status is classified as being of 'Least Concern' by the IUCN.   To me their appearance is always striking and immaculate.
