Help identify these birds in south Jersey

Recommended Posts


Can anyone help identify these bird from [as usual; my apologies] such crude, washed out photos?  There were about 6 to 8 of them sitting in two adjacent small trees/bushes.  Are they perhaps cedar waxwings?  Some type of swallow?  Photo was taken this past week in Edward B. Forsythe NWR.  Any thoughts, suggestions, or other input are, as always, greatly appreciated!

Juvenile European Starlings.  Swallows have much smaller beaks.


I've seen adults  before, but never [knowingly] juveniles.  Thanks!
