Saw large group of these birds, in early Nov in Dallas

by Delisa Day
(Dallas TX, USA)

They perched on foliage, zealously eating light blue berries on evergreen trees along alley. Brown, a bit larger than a mourning dove, with totally orange breast. Heard no call or any winnowing sound as they flew. Had seen a few, end of Oct, but don't recall ever having seen them before then. Then they were suddenly gone, mid-Nov & haven't seen since.
