Hi! This bird is confusing me ... saw it on the ground and around low branches of trees in Bruce Peninsula Ontario. Just slightly smaller than a cardinal and absolutely no pink or reddish colour at all, (and beak slightly more pointy) he/she is tawny grey/brown with the dark brown on it's crest and a distinctive brown/black line from it's eye. I thought maybe cedar waxwing but again .. was hanging solo and seems like it is something else (think it is too big to be a Tufted Titmouse ...) .... Any suggestions? I am a new birder so all my assumptions could be wrong LOL!
