Kind of looks like a bunting, but is solid black, no wing stripes.

Bird friends.. We have a new bird snacking at our feeders the last couple of days and we cannot figure out what kind he is. Hes a good size...8-9 inches, black,some brown speckles with a white beak and literally looks like he has fur instead of feathers. He's so stinking cute... Like a teddy bear with wings... Any ideas? Kind of looks like a bunting, but is solid black, no wing stripes. Keep in mind, we li e about a mile from a bird sanctuary so it could really be anything. Trying to get a pic but all I get is screen... 🐦
