Life is too short: eat dessert instead
I'm not so sure we have those in Missouri. It looks very simular to a titmouse, the male titmouse has a crest on its head like a cardinal. How much snow do you have now?
it seems to be just about everywhere, Harvey. I added a link that shows a distribution map for the US. they're about the size of a skinny bluebird, and more colorful than titmice, which are about the size of chickadees. the only time I don't welcome waxwings is on wash day, as they will eat every berry in sight in the summer.
AND...............Yep, you guessed it; they're delicious. Though it does take a heap of them for a decent entree.
