While the consensus is for a Catbird variant, I'm not yet convinced and, of course, only I can have a feel for size and it seems larger than a catbird to me.
No possibility of hearing calls this afternoon and I'm not sure that will be at all possible as none of the birds [catbirds & mockers] are prone to calling when chowing down on suet, but maybe something definitive will occur tomorrow.
The best pics were taken while I was standing in clear view appx 12-15' from the feeders, so I can try that again tomorrow. My equip is dated - Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital, 37-185mm.
