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.
