The little Cedar Waxwing was in the street and just out of the nest.
The eyes were closed. Taken on an overcast late afternoon.

Thanks, we moved it over to a sheltered spot off the road.
We hope it'll be alright too.

It's an adult. Young have dark streaks. This one probably collided with a window or car.

Waxwings are notorious for running into window glass especially after becoming drunk on berries. They seem to recover nicely however.
