The star of our second Colourful Birds coin, the cedar waxwing has a distinctive appearance thanks to its slicked-back crest, black mask and silky yellow-brown feathers. This gregarious species loves to forage in flocks and can be found in all of Canada’s provinces and territories. It has an appetite for insects and small fruits, including those of the flowering crab apple tree featured in this nature-themed coin design.

A beautiful piece that’s sure to brighten up any nature- or bird-themed collection.
