A female Red Crossbill.
It looks as it would be hard to eat with a bill like the Crossbills have. They stay around as long as there is a good supply of pine cones in the forests. They must drink a lot because of something in the pine seeds, so they visit the garden for water.

That bill must come in very handy for extracting the seeds from pine cones.
kinda reminds me of a budgies head....sorta..
