Tiny Gray Birds

(Cedar Crest, NM)

About mid-morning a group of tiny gray birds come through our cedar trees feeding upside down. They stay a very few minutes, then move on. They are 2 to 3 inches long, all gray with sort of fuzzy feathers. We live in the East Mountains outside of Albuquerque, NM.
