Northern Ontario migratory bird

by Marilyn
(Timmins, Ontario, Canada)

I saw this small flock of birds mid-October eating crabapples that were still left hanging in the tree in my backyard. Clearly on a migratory path through north-eastern Ontario. They were black/grey and white speckled all over, similar to a grouse's colouring except that it had pale buff coloured crown and wing tips. Otherwise, it lookd very much like a waxwing--same size, same shape, same sharp bill, same short squared tail, perhaps even a very subtle mask. Sorry, I didn't get a photo.
