Illinois bird lover

by Carolyn
(Southern Illinois)

We had a reddish orange bird with a completely black head, looks as if he has a collar on, the red feathers are longer than the feathers on his head. We live in Southern Illinois. Can anyone tell us what kind of bird this is, we can find it in any of our bird books.
