I have been seeing a bird I can't identify at my back yard feeder. The birds look to be perching type, w/ a sable brown hood and dark, dark purple (almost black) body. There are 2 pairs, the females (?) are less colorful, but, none the less beautiful. I wish I had a photo --working on that. Any help in solving this mystery would be greatly appreciated.
I live in Baltimore, MD if that helps, but I 've never seen these birds in this area before...
