Hi Linda,

It is "extremely" unlikely that they were Bohemian Waxwings.

Received a phone call from Michelle Bullis in Newport News. She is a
biologist at Christopher Newport University and has been a back-yard
birder since her early teens. She reports seeing about fifty Bohemian
Waxwings drinking from her birdbath a couple days ago. They drank their
fill, then moved on. One unfortunate bird had a fatal encounter with a
window. She has bagged and frozen it to give to the university's
ornothology program.
I don't recall any other sightings of Bohemian Waxwings in this area, but
would welcome comments from other birders.
