I was out changing the water in the bee's bowls and noticed a group of birds that flew into the tree. With me standing there some flew down to the water dish got a drink and flew back into the tree. I've never seen these birds around here so Im guessing they are just passing through. Anyone know what they are? There sure were a bunch of them.

How lucky you are!  They look to be Cedar Waxwings. Very shy little birds & you usually hear them but don't see.  They are beautiful!  J

I love to see the Cedar Wax wings!
I watch them "swim" through the berry bushes, gulping down berries.
My brother had one as a pet. It had been hit by a car.
He took it home and nursed it back to helath.
It LOVED blueberries.
