The Bushtit, also sometimes known as the American Bushtit (Scientific name - Psaltriparus minimus) is a small songbird found in Western North America. They are found in small flocks and seem to be constantly on the move. They do not migrate, however sometimes in winter move from higher elevations down to lower ones. They are a bit smaller than the Chickadee and are mainly plain brown and grey. They have fairly large heads with a short bill and long tail feathers.  Photos were taken in Abbotsford, British Columbia in March 2015 and February 2014 (bottom photo).
