I'm here to test your legendary bird identification abilities.
Today, I saw the cutest little bird and I'd like to know what it is. I'll see if I can get pics tomorrow morning.
It was a small bird, tall and skinny. Maybe 6 inches tall? It had a brown head which faded into a pale, yellow breast. It's beak and eye-area were a dark brown/black. The wings were a matching dark brown/black (the undersides were a downy white), and the wingtips (only on the very end tip) were a brilliant red. The very edge of the tail feathers were a bright yellow. There were probably 6 of them in a tree and as I rushed home to get my camera, a bunch of people came out and started mowing/weedeating and scared them off.
The only thing I could think of was a meadowlark but they have a brown ring on their neck and I don't think they have the colored wing-tips/tail.
Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks!!
