Post #9062310

I've seen this bird a few times lately near my apt. in Bradenton, FL. It doesn't seem to be in "Florida's Birds" by Maehr & Kale. So I took these pictures today and thought I'd post here. It doesn't stay put for long, is very fast and erratic, and has a very lively chirp when it's ready to move. Thanks in advance.
