I just want to double check this is a Cedar Waxwing, rather than Bohemian. The coloring looks right for a Cedar, but it seems fairly chunky and there's white on the wings, but it doesn't quite look like what the guides show.

The Cedar is year-round in Iowa and the Bohemian is winter.

Thanks for your help.

Yep, Cedar Waxwing - Bohemian doesn't have that yellowish belly.. The white looks like some displaced down feathers.
