this permanent yukon resident model
was kind enough to allow a picture or three this afternoon
in the mid minus thirties (celsius;-)) ...
it was a beautiful day
( notice the icicles on the lower beak and frost over the eye ... ;-))

He is a brave little bird to overwinter in those frosty temperatures - icicles and all - his stance and expression even looks a bit cheeky :-)))
well captured, Robert - beautiful against the snow, and I think he looks very similar to our Cedar Waxwing.
Warm greetings from a wet Vancouver - yukkk !!

It goes without saying that permanent Yukon residents are brave and tough and handsome! :-)))
Nice shot!

perched on his snow-crusted twig, puffed-up and proud – a worthy yukon resident – a kingdom for a his thermofluff ™ ; ) which makes him so well-suited for survival in the yukon freezer! ; )) the pebble-like icicles under his beak make him look like a fairy-tale creature: "once upon a time, there was a bohemian waxwing who was very bohemian indeed, cherishing lofty dreams about visiting the far-away ocean one day and going for a swim with the walrusses, whom he both envied and adored. when the mighty creator heard about this wish, he was very amused by it and decided to grant at least part of it, by giving the unsuspecting bird a set of tusks. then, one cold january morning, the waxwing bent down for a sip of ice-cold creek water, spotted his reflection in the ice and was shocked to see he'd turned into a waxwing-walrus chimera…" did he ever make it to the ocean? i'd like to think so, yes, but – – open end! ; )))) greetings, sabine.

I am hesitant whether to sympathize with the bird, the photographer, or both. Quite nippy!

A very handsome bird. Surprising that nature would not provide it with a more discreet winter coat. as such it is a boon not only to the photographer trying to spot it, but also to potential predators I presume.

Und ich hatte angenommen, sie ziehen wie die Cedar Waxwing im Winter alle nach Süden.
Diese treffe ich zurzeit noch immer bei uns in FL an.
