My friend and I are stumped- we can't figure out what bird this is! I was hiking near Buttermilk Falls in Columbia, NJ and I saw what looked like a migratory bird. The size of a catbird with a more full body and a slightly pointed head like a cardinal. Dark black body and white stomach and red spots under each wing. It was flying and flew into a small tree before flying away. I was unable to get a picture. It kind of sounded like, "Sooooweet!"

Oh, I can't believe I didn't think about myself. Good call @HamRHead!

I wonder if you did what I did, interpreting 'red spots under each wing' to mean 'wingpits visible in flight' (I can never remember the anatomical name for this area).

Thanks!  Now let's see if I can remember it!  They say that's easiest if you use the word in a sentence.  Let's see ...
