The possible great kiskadee was larger than a cardinal. About the color of your gremlins at the campfire, Wrennie. I know that it's belly and underside of the wings were yellow, and it had...kinda like a black mask, I think. It definitely had yellow shoulders though 'cause I saw it up in the tree, and could see the yellow above the wings. It was in a bunch of leaves, so it was hard to see all of it. Most places said that the kiskadee only goes up to Texas but Wikopedia mentioned it as a KS bird. Do you know of any other birds that look relatively similiar to it?
I wasn't sure if the blue bird was a hummer or not. I just don't know any other birds that are so pretty and small. Definitely looks like the indigo bunting. I'll show DH and see if he agrees when he gets back from the store.
