New bird at my feeder, no pic yet!

Sarasota, FL(Zone 9b)

He was chased around by the jays and cardinals, so I could not get a shot of him.

He was about the size of the cardinals, but no crest. Black head and back, black and white wings, snowy white belly and a red flash down the breast.

sounds like Rose-breasted Grosbeak

is this it. This is male, females are brownish
They love sunflower seed and Safflower seeds. if you keep them out you could possible get up to 6 prs and that is a site to behold

:) Yes, that does look a lot like my bird although it had a narrower red breast. Thanks! My feeders always have lots of sunflower seeds, but there's heavy traffic with all the jays, grackles and cardinals so I do hope the grosbeak comes back.
