Trying to identify a rare bird here that I have seen over the years....

I'm trying to identify a bird that comes and goes very infrequently....I've lived here 24 years and have only seen it a few times in my back yard. One year I believe it had a mate.

It is mostly gray, about the size of a mockingbird, but smaller and has a oval shaped puff of feathers on it's head (like a cardinal, but bigger and rounder). It is EXTREMELY shy.

I have not been able to find it in my bird book.
Also, sometimes I see small flocks of cedar waxwings. Usually in the Spring, as if they are migrating through. They LOVE to gorge on Burford Holly berries (usually with the robins when they are returning) and really seem to love the dark berries on my Tupelo tree.

you should post that question on http://www.whatbird.com, not here.
One on whatbird.com , click on Forums, then on 'help me identify a bird', post it and see what they say about the id. Perhaps include the location, since species vary according to latitude, longitude and habitat
