Bird is about fat male Robin size, has a Crest like a cardinal, its totally black on back and head, and has a brilliant Orange belly. Sorry, no pictures, was reaching for camera and it was gone.
It is not a Wisconsin bird, must be migrating. I seen it for about 5 seconds and it was gone, did not see any others with it,
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds a bit like a Black-headed Grosbeak but not the correct range.

Here's a pic of an Eastern Towhee (haven't figured out adding 2 pics at once, so had to edit).

I may live in San Diego County, but my home and heart will always be in Missouri.

This bird is: Solid Black Back and Crested Head
Brilliant, brilliant Orange Breast
No the wind was not blowing, it had a Cardinal like Crest on its head.
It reminded me of a Cardinal, but was larger than one.
