Orange breasted brown bird

There are thousands in the trees around my house in SC. They Are very messy and continually fly from tree to tree when they hear noises but will not go away. Making a very big mess all over the neighborhood. Any help?

Similar to a Robin? NEW
by: GaryE

From the physical description alone my first guess was an American Robin ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/American_Robin/id ). The behavior does not sound like a Robin though because they are mainly ground feeders and they do not spend a lot of time in trees and they usually do not appear in the hundreds usually 4 or 10 or so max usually only in pairs. So I doubt they are robins.

So the only thing I can suggest is to look at that website and scroll down and have a look at similar species. The other obvious match might be an orchard Oriole but only the males have an orange breast so I doubt it is that.

Good luck and let us know if you figure it out!
