Bohemians are common winter residents where you are. I believe they're more populated than Cedars in winter. Also note the plump proportions, duller color and amount of black in the face.

Whoops, didn't see Liam's suggestion before I commented! Could also be a Bohemian waxwing, they have that greyish bottom actually and found in Ottawa area too, so a good bet.

Jesse, you live really close to where I used to live in ON, I lived in Nepean! These look like waxwings, and the kinds you find in ON are cedar waxwings :) Awesome spotting!!
