I've had a small flock (10-15) coming to the "stream" that  feeds my water 
garden several days this past week.  It's the first  time I've seen them in my 
neighborhood.  They drink and bathe, but so far  haven't gone to the nearby 
holly which is full of berries.  I also had my  first ever in the yard Eastern 
Towhee this past Monday, but I haven't seen him  since.

Had  flock of 40++ settle into my deciduous  holly just outside my window - 
golly they are beautiful little birds.   They left some for another day but 
stripped other branches bare.
