Bushtit

All summer I saw groups of tiny grey birds on the dikes near my work, but never had a camera with me to capture a photo so I could look up what they were.  A few days ago, while working on the computer at home, I heard loads of chirping through the open window, and when I went outside, there was a group of the tiny grey birds in the bushes alongside my building.  Luckily, I managed to grab my camera and capture a single decent photo, and figure out what I had been seeing were Bushtits.  I had never seen them at home before, and who knows if I will ever see them flying around my neighbourhood again, but I certainly am happy to have a few months of wondering “what do I call these?” finally over.
