Thirsty bird

While the cardinals were eating, so were these types of birds, and drinking at a basin i have out that catches rain (and snow). I forget this type of bird, but it's currently the most common i see out at the feeders and on the bushes with little red berries. When they are around, there are more than dozens of them, big flocks of them eating and being skittish. They are common but are hard to get good pictures of as they fly off at almost any motion i make. I'm glad i got this, as i love seeing them drink. After they dip in they lift their heads up at an angle to swallow.

The snow is all gone from what i can tell, but the next two days are predicted to have either snow or rain, or both. Not looking forward to that.
