Before I spend way too long searching, I want to see if any of the bird experts here know this bird. First time observed here.
CLOSED: Bird ID
Maybe a Yellow Bellied Flycatcher- never mind, their not supposed to be inFla.

They winter in the tropics, so could be headed North through Florida. Experts?
Leave it to Resin to know the bird! I was checking it out and some winter in South Florida. Pelletory was on the right track. Thanks to you both.
I feel lucky to see one of those in my yard. It only is around for about two weeks and never comes out from the shrub line..nor have I ever seen it at the feeder. Im going to have my eyes peeled now. It an interesting color as well..or I think so.
Yep, it is mapped as wintering in southern Florida, but if the pic is recent, it could also be a passage bird, I'd think they'll be arriving from South America in good numbers by now.
