Fat little grey birds.

by Vicki
(Seattle, WA)

There were three of these fluffy little guys, sitting fairly still in some tall, bare bushes in the morning, singing little chirpy sing-songy calls. Smaller than a robin, but larger than the juncos we have around. No visible stripes or markings, evenly light grey all over, but darker grey towards the tail. Fairly round.


I was thinking bushtits, but they are darker up top than the bottom, correct?

We're in Seattle, in a quiet neighborhood.

Thanks!

Bushtits NEW
by: Judy- Seattle

Hi Vicki! Bushtits would be my first guess, too. I live a little south of Seattle, and we have lots of Bushtits around our place. I noticed that they seem to perfer gathering in the bushes than in trees. They are only a bit darker on their backs. My bird book says that the females and a little lighter than the males. I will write a separate post with a couple photos of my Bushtits.
