Black flying insects on peonies

These insects flock to the buds on my peonies. They sorta resemble black ants with wings, I know they aren't harmful but I'm wondering if they're beneficial.

They only reason I wanna know is because I have a bird bath near some of my peonies and these guys keep landing in it and drowning. I'm starting to feel kind of bad for them.
