Small and in great numbers.

(Seattle, WA, USA)

I live in Western Washington. The birds I saw are often in our yard and dart around in an almost un-bird like manner. They tend to stay very close to the ground and there are usually quite a few of them out at one time. They are very small, small enough to fit into the palm of my hand. Their color is a grayish brown and they have small curved beaks. Their bodies are very round. I believe their eyes are black or brown, but I may be wrong.

Bushtits

Chanda, I live just south of Seattle and have the same birds. I have seen them for about 3-4 winters now. Before then I never saw them. I looked them up and they are Bushtits. There can be 8 or more at on time on the hanging suet feeder. When startled they all drop to the ground. I can't add a photo here, but I will make a new post with photos.
