A newcomer to Montgomery, AL?

by Pat Gardner Roper
(Montgomery, AL)

It has a black head with a yellow beak. The underside of the bird is black. The top is grayish. What is it?

We've been seeing similar birds with burnt umber or yellow undersides. Are they perhaps the male and the female?

Hi Al, I'm sorry no one has answered your question, It may be because it is a difficult one. We would need more info.
* Can you give an estimate of it's size compared to an American robin?
* What color is it's breast?
* Is the feeder hanging or on the ground and what type is it; ie a platform, cage etc.
* what kind of seed or food is in the feeder?
