Saw my first cedar waxwing.

What a striking bird! This one was hanging out on one of our corkscrew willows.

Aren't they? They don't come to my yard, but we have a lot of them around here. Do you have berries of any kind growing? They mostly eat fruit and love berries of all kinds, including cedar berries in the fall and winter (hence the cedar in their name). They'll even eat overripe fermented berries and get drunk. So, if you find one passed out on the ground, keep predators away from it, and it will just sleep it off! Here's info about them.
