I would like to ID a bird I saw yesterday, July 4, 2012. It was in Pocono Summit, PA, NE PA, in a woodland community, moderately high in a tree, perched on a branch. It was approximately the size of a cardinal with a brownish black body, a gray to beige chest and belly. It had a short red stripe on the nape of its neck and a single yellow strip across its tail, not far from the tip. It looked like it might be a fly catcher, but it was a bit larger than one.

I have searched and searched all sorts of website and am still unable to ID him.

Could you please help me? I would greatly appreciate it
