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.

Hi, if Judy doesn't get back to you first I will tell you what she told me, "they are Bushtits". Aren't they adorable? They need your suet to sustain them on their long flight. So be sure to stock up for all the migrators.
