My wife, Chrissy McClarren, saw a BOHEMIAN WAXWING from the parking lot 
of Lost Valley (Weldon Springs) this afternoon.  The bird had very 
obvious white markings on the wings (as well as yellow tips on the wing 
feathers) that distinquish it from the Cedar Waxwing The bird also had 
the rufous undertail coverts and gray belly. The red around the mask on 
the head was very reddish.     She was within 10 feet of the bird and 
got an excellent look.  The bird was by itself and hanging low under the 
trees.  She got no photo.  She hopes someone else might see it and get a 
photo.
