yellow breast, white ring around neck, black stripes on head, robin sized bird
by: Anonymous

I saw the same bird as described above-- robin sized, yellow breast, white ring around neck, etc in my yard and am having a difficult time id'ing it also. It ate at our bird feeder, and I did get some photos. I am assuming it is migratory: I live in Northern Montana. I also looked at the suggested birds.that they were not a match. Any new suggestions?

Regarding "ID this bird".....They are apparently
some type of migratory bird as they were only in
my yard for 3 days.
Thanks for all your help and interest!

Hi Carol;

Have a look at Vireos and Warblers. Maybe a type of either species. Do any of them look familiar ?

Not a chat??

The ones I observed had more white on their back and the yellow of the breast extended to the belly. It was difficult to get a close look so I used binoculars. They didn't eat from the feeder but I did notice they went for bugs in the air.
