I kept hearing a single loud chirp that was repeated. I got to the window and saw at my general mix feeder a good size bird I've never seen before. It was shaped like a cardinal with a reddish/orange beak like a cardinal. It was mostly blue (a bit darker than an indigo bunting) and it had orange on its wing tips. that is about all I caught before it flew off. We are mostly wooded so I couldn't follow its flight. I tried to id it on "whatbird.com" but was unsuccessful. I got a camera raised and was focusing as it flew so I couldn't capture a photo. Any ideas?
