Brown thrasher with an orange chest?

Recommended Posts

What kind of bird has a solid rust colored head, back and wings, a solid white chest and belly with dashed black stripes going down, and a bright orange patch on the chest? Loud beautiful song. Perching and hopping around in a palm tree in southern California.

Can you compare the size with another bird you're familiar with?  Is it close in size to a sparrow, a robin, or something else?

Thanks!

I listened to an audio recording of a brown thrasher, and the song was different.

I have two guesses out of left field: A Red-throated Pipit, or a Wood Thrush with something on its chest.

Looks like a rust-colored wood thrust, but with a bright orange oval patch on the chest.
