Western Bluebirds and Juniper berries

On the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains this week (where I'm spending some time with family in Bend) the freezing fog has covered almost everything in a layer of white crystals. Today I found a mixed flock of Western Bluebirds and Cedar Waxwings hanging out in and around several dense Juniper trees, apparently managing to find some ripe berries.

The two species seemed to be getting along without conflict, even though they were both after the same food supply. They both show up briefly in the following video clip:
