Um, Bohemian waxwing (Bombucilla garrulus) is the only waxwing species found in Europe, while Japanese waxwing (B. japonica) is found in Asia and cedar waxwing (B. cedrorum) in North America. Bohemian waxwing does have few subspecies (with different geographical distribution), but the differences are small and for my eye these birds birds do not look that different from those I have seen. Example:

@Stuff: Nice image Steef! A tighter shot on the stationary bird would have been good, too (there is a lot of detail apparent), but the OOF bird in flight adds an element that helps IMHO.

Welcome to Dyxum!

Cheers... Brian

I let Bob to answer the latter question, but Wilson is American ornithologist Alexander Wilson.

Wilson's patent on this species expired so I felt entitled to use his bird.

Wilson was an artist, poet and author. He is the Father of American Ornithology and had a great influence on Audubon. I have counted at least six birds named after him.

Thanks, Bob & Heikki, for indulging my bad joke

and for providing some interesting information about the bird's namesake.

Cheers... Brian

Striking shot, Jacques!
Just look at those eyes.





(the rest of the photo could probably use a bit of darkening). Minor nit.
