On behalf of Beth who sent in an email:-

Seen twice up close at feeder outside my window - looks exactly like a cardinal except it was dark brown & had traces of red in crest when it was raised and a white patch a little lower than the base of neck that was exposed when head bent to pick up food

Can anyone identify?

Hi Beth, the only bird I can think of that matches this description is a Waxwing, a Winter visitor to this country
