Please help identify a solid grey, crested bird?

by Catherine

I saw a pair of light grey birds building a nest at the top of a satellite dish pole. The male (?) has a crest and has a body that is shaped similar to a cardinal or blue jay. I didn't get a great look at them and was not able to take their picture, but I think they have a dark grey stripe on them.

If the birds were small and you were in Southern California, I might suggest Plain Titmouse.

Could you birds be Titmouses?

I'm wondering if it might have been a Cedar Waxwing.
