Two strange birds in FL

by Joella
(Conway, MA, USA)

My friend saw two birds in his yard in St. Petersburg, FL he did not get a picture, but described them to me. I am usually able to quickly identify a bird just from the description, but I have to admit I'm stumped. He said they were chestnut brown colored on the head and back, with a yellow chest. He said that the chest had black stripes that were shaped like lightning bolts; the stripes were not straight lines. He also said they were the size of a blue jay. I am truly at a loss as to what these birds could be, unless they are from Mexico, Central or South America. Please help us identify these birds!

Thanks!

WOW, They do sound like they could have migrated up or maybe got lost from the flock during migration. I don't know what they would be but I would like to suggest that your friend contact the nearest Audubon Society to report a possible Rare Bird sighting. The may be able to tell him what species they are too.

I live the Pacific Northwest and we having more and more Rare Bird sightings here.
