Cedar Waxwing on Barbed Wire Fence

A Cedar Waxwing landed on the barbed wire fence and watched us, when we stopped at the side of the gravel road to watch ducks on a pond and several tiny distant Red Crossbills feeding in hot road stones. 

This Waxwing is missing the red wing tips some Cedar Waxwings sport. A juvenile? Or simply a bird with no red tips?
