Unusual little white birds

For past 2 days have seen TOTALLY WHITE SMALL birds size of Chickadee. My Granddaughter and I watched them in Huge lilac bush for over an hour. We live in Northern Idaho and NONE of the bird Identification books have anything close to a photo of this bird. They chattered alot and quickly went from one part of bush to another. I do not have a digital camera but would love to know what these little guys are.

Little white birds NEW

Kathy, after reading your description of these birds, I think they may be Bushtits. Although Bushtits are more of a light grey than white, they are small birds that flock together and perfer to hide in bushes. I have them seasonly in my garden south of Seattle. They like to perch in the large Pieris bush below the window. They feed in numbers on the suet cakes. They have tiny beaks and long, narrow tails but no distinct markings on their plumage.
