I am quite sure these little birds were bushtits, as they clustered together eating suet and then flew away as a group. It was windy and rainy today in Courtenay. The photos I took were not good enough to share.

if they flew away in a group and looked like little grey birds then odds are they were bushtits.
We get them in flocks sometimes at our feeders too.
