Thanks all! For now I'm going to go with Liam's suggestion.

Thanks for the help. I'll try to get a clip of his song if I can.

ForestDragon, I thought maybe an Eastern Towhee, but there is so much white on its breast and belly. I'm not sure about it being an ET. But could be leucistic. I agree with using the sound tab to ID.

I don't believe this is a Redstart. The American Redstart has orange on the wings as well, this bird has white.
I do think this could be a male Eastern Towhee.

If you scroll down on this page there is a "sound" tab. You can listen and see if it matches your bird.

Looks like a redstart, but I'm not sure because of the deep red.
