Spot the difference

Seeing these two Bohemian Waxwings in the back garden this afternoon reminded me that I had yet to post any shots of Mousebirds from Malawi. I always think that beautiful as Waxwings are, once a flock gets actively feeding on a tree they resemble a swarm of rodents. Well, the Mousebirds are even more rodent-like with hairlike plumage and scurrying movements in the branches.

Why was it red-faced? What had it been doing?
